Foundation Member Spotlight

Jim Zahansky

James Zahansky, QVCC Foundation Member, “swings” into his second year as the golf chairperson for the QVCC Annual Golf Tournament. This year, we celebrate our 25th year of enjoying a fun day of golf to benefit QVCC students in their educational needs.

Zahansky has been a dedicated member of the QVCC Foundation for many years and believes that our mission is the most important mission in North East Connecticut.

“It is essential to raise money for the success of our students, the impact is life changing for many and I truly believe their achievements can transform our community. The QVCC Foundation’s mission is fully aligned to who I am.”

The 25th Annual QVCC Golf Tournament will be one to remember. This year, we will change our venue for the tournament to the Connecticut National Country Club, which will be an exciting and new experience for our golfers.  We also have six major donors who contributed to our mission and their donations are very much appreciated.

Zahansky chooses to continue to be QVCC’s Golf Chairperson because he knows that the Golf Tournament has the largest impact on aide for QVCC students who need it for their education. Zahansky has stated, “It is great to lead this type of fundraiser and work with an amazing group of volunteers who make it happen. A small group of people can make a big impact.”

“Thanks to you (sponsors,) for the last five years QVCC students have graduated with no federal debt. This allows local students to further their education, improve their job opportunities, and make our community stronger. On their behalf – Thank you!” – James Zahansky
