"As a soon to be bachelor's degree graduate I would like to thanks Bucks County Community College because it would not have been possible without this amazing school's help. I was a fish out of water when I first started there and frankly I drowned a few times but BCCC was always there when I finally found my breath again. I not only received my Associates in Social Work, from Bucks County Community College, I also found my confidence. The college life is not the only place you are forced to take tests because life is has always and will always test us. Through my class room experience and my interactions with staff and students I believe I am a more confident and thoughtful person. College isn't just an opportunity to learns facts and gain a piece a paper. It is a way to learn about yourself and BCCC allows you to do that at your own pace (and at an awesomely great price.) I graduated class of 2012 and about two months ago I went back and bought a sweater from their gift shop. I wear it all the time at Temple because I am a proud graduate of Bucks County Community College."

“The Bristol Borough PBA recognizes the fact that education is a critical element in providing the community with better police officers who are intelligent, proficient, and effective. Detective Charles C. Favoroso epitomized these three elements of police work and left an indelible impression on those who were fortunate enough to have worked with him. It is only fitting and appropriate that his name be used in conjunction with this scholarship to help provide the best police officers possible for the town that he loved, his hometown of Bristol Borough. At Bucks County Community College’s Bristol Campus, Criminal Justice students are fortunate to have an excellent program that is cost effective and is in close proximity to help them achieve their goals. We hope that every Criminal Justice student at Bucks accomplishes their goals.”
