Fund benefits students from Chelsea, Massachusetts

Eric L. Shuman '77, senior vice president and CFO of Thomson Learning, has established a $100,000 scholarship fund to support students from his hometown of Chelsea, Massachusetts.

Shuman, who now resides in Connecticut, has specified that first preference for scholarship awards be given to applicants from the community, located two miles north of Boston, with second preference going to students from surrounding Suffolk County.

"My years at Boston College were, without a doubt, a pivotal time in my life," Shuman said. "Its important to me to provide the same opportunity for an excellent education to others. I feel a special affinity to students in Chelsea who may be working hard, aspiring to come to Boston College, but lacking in financial resources."

Shuman joined Thomson Learning in 1994 as vice president and corporate controller of the Thomson Newspapers division. He began his career at Coopers & Lybrand, where he rose to general practice audit partner before joining Axel Johnson as vice president and corporate controller in 1992.

"My Boston College mentors--especially one professor, Donald White--helped me set myself on the right professional path," Shuman said. "I received a great education and invaluable personal attention at Boston College. I want to make sure others can take advantage of the outstanding resources the University offers."
