Richard Abbott '69
"I came to Babson as a transfer student in 1967 with the goal of having a "pragmatic" business education. Following graduation and entering the working world it was apparent to me that Babson had provided that foundation.
In recent years, I have taken a renewed interest in the school. I have witnessed the strong reputation of its undergraduate and graduate programs not just on a local basis but internationally. The growing numbers of visionary students and alumni is impressive.
So, as Babson approaches its centennial celebration and as I return for my 50th reunion, it seemed fitting to make a planned gift to Babson. Being able to provide funds towards additional scholarship opportunities seem to me to be a worthy payback."
