Community Project Leads to Award for QCC Adjunct Professor

March, 2017

QCC Adjunct Professor Brian Cummings was named one of the four recipients of the 2017 Thomas S. Green Public Service Award from the Worcester Regional Resource Bureau.

He teaches advanced manufacturing at Worcester Technical High School and is an adjunct professor of advanced manufacturing at Quinsigamond Community College.

Mr. Cummings received the award for a community project with students, including redesigning and creating a new Key to the City as well as special event coins. He also assisted Metal Fabrication students in CNC programming of parts used in the construction of winter streetlight decorations in Worcester.

The awards will be presented in a ceremony on April 26, at 5:00 p.m. at Assumption College. A reception in honor of the recipients will follow.

The Green Award recognizes exceptional competence and efficient handling of all assigned responsibilities; enthusiastic performance of tasks above and beyond the call of duty; cooperative, helpful and friendly attitude toward the public and fellow employees; and community involvement outside of job responsibilities.

The Research Bureau’s 12-member award committee, composed of representatives from diverse community organizations, selected the recipients from nominees submitted by the public. This is the 29th annual Green Awards.

In 1987, when Tom Green, a distinguished civic leader, former Vice President of Norton Company, and a founder of The Research Bureau passed away, the Worcester Regional Resource Bureau honored his memory by establishing the Thomas S. Green Public Service Awards for outstanding public servants. Since 1988, The Research Bureau has recognized over 100 “unsung heroes” in municipal government for their commitment to making Worcester and nearby communities better places to live and work.
