Honoring the Legacy of R.T. Paine Metcalf

RT Paine MetcalfThe NSCC Foundation is honored to join with The Metcalf Family to continue Paine’s inspirational legacy as a pillar of the North Shore community through the annual awarding of the R.T. Paine Metcalf Scholarship to NSCC students and by advancing the Foundation’s endowment. Paine’s journey at North Shore Community College (NSCC) began when he enrolled in piano lessons so that he could play an inherited piano at his home. Experiencing NSCC and its amazing students firsthand, Paine volunteered to serve as a Founding Director of the North Shore Community College Foundation in 1983, where he led the establishment and growth of its endowment and its scholarship program for NSCC students. Paine’s philanthropic leadership and generosity during his 38 years of service as a Director, President, and Director Emeritus of the North Shore Community College Foundation is truly unparalleled.  Together with his wife Barbara, Paine has transformed the future for generations of hardworking NSCC students and their families.  In recognition of their exemplary philanthropy and volunteerism, they were recognized as the first Champions for North Shore Community College honorees in 2017. 

Honor Paine's inspiration legacy with a gift to the Robert Treat Paine Metcalf Scholarship.
