Paying it Forward (For Stonehill)

January 5, 2012

A student-athlete, Paul Daly '62 was playing baseball for Stonehill with his parents watching from the bleachers. In the middle of the game, his father collapsed and died.

In the wake of his loss, President Rev. Richard Sullivan, C.S.C. stepped in to comfort and assist Daly and his family. Daly has never forgotten the kindness of the College's fourth president during that difficult time.

Four decades after graduating from Stonehill, which provided him with a scholarship, Daly is a successful consultant, former F.B. I. agent of 32 years and the father of two children and three step-children.

And, over three decades, Daly has supported his alma mater financially in appreciation for what the College did for him educationally and spiritually.

That's why when presented with the opportunity to give a scholarship, from the Former Agents of the FBI Foundation, to any college or university, he chose Stonehill. The Foundation is an affiliate of the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI.

On a recent visit back to the campus, Daly met with Kirstin Vinal '14, a criminal justice major from Swampscott and presented her with a J. Edgar Hoover Memorial Scholarship for $2500.

With his 50th class reunion in June, Daly will return to campus for that celebration, which will see him and his classmates inducted into the College's Pillar Society. He has every intention of continuing his record of generous support for Stonehill.
