HCC tribute raised more than $100,000 to benefit students

The net proceeds from the Hagerstown Community College Foundation’s 24th Annual Tribute, held in early April, total more than $100,000, to benefit HCC student scholarships. The event, which had 460 attendees, honored Andrew Serafini, with a theme of “The Possibilities are Endless.”

“HCC has been a major influence on three generations of our family. We are thankful for those that had the forethought and vision for this tremendous educational institutional right in our community,” said Serafini. “We appreciate those who have contributed over the years to provide scholarships, keeping the cost as affordable as possible and ensuring that ‘the possibilities are endless’ for our students and all have the opportunity to fulfill their God-given potential.”

Serafini served as a member of the Maryland Senate (District 2) from 2015 to 2020, after serving as a member of the Maryland House of Delegates from 2008 to 2015. He has been president of Serafini Financial Services, in Hagerstown, since 1990.

At the event, Diana (Hicks) Serafini, Andrew’s wife, was honored for holding the record for most points scored (42) in a single women’s basketball game, in the history of HCC. She graduated from then Hagerstown Junior College in 1979.

The previous 24 tribute events for the HCC Foundation have netted a combined total of $2,213,242. To learn more about the HCC Foundation or make a gift to support student scholarships, visit www.hagerstowncc.edu/alumni-foundation.
