AACFB Awards New Scholarship to High School Senior in Connecticut

The American Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (AACFB) awarded its newly developed scholarship to Vincent Borges. Borges is a high school senior in Norwalk, CT, and will receive an award of $500 as the first recipient of the new scholarship.

In October of 2020, the AACFB unveiled the new scholarship program, which is open to high school seniors and students attending a trade or technical school in addition to those attending a two- or four-year institution of higher learning.

“This scholarship is a great opportunity to help me get closer to being able to afford college and help take some of the weight off me and my parents in our joint effort to help me with college,” Borges said. “This scholarship will help me on my way to achieving everything that I want during and after college.”

Don Cosenza and Paul Cheslock of North Mill Equipment Finance recommended Borges, who started as an intern for North Mill in 2020.

“The youngest and one of the most responsible and valued members of our team, he has become someone that we can rely on to handle various tasks and projects efficiently and effectively,” Cheslock said.

“The scholarship taskforce was impressed with Vincent as a hard-working young man, both in his studies and in his role at North Mill Equipment Finance,” Cindy Downs, president of the AACFB, said. “We are excited to be able to assist him in achieving his goal of a college degree. We wish him a bright future.”

The AACFB hopes to grow the scholarship fund and increase award amounts in the future. Donations to the scholarship fund may be made here.
