Thomas Hetherington Memorial Scholarship

Tom Hetherington, an MCC alumnus, devoted his life to the fire service and serving his community. He began his career as an Explorer with the Churchville Volunteer Fire Department and worked his way up through the ranks, eventually becoming chief. In his final years, he was Assistant Chief of the Middlesex Hose Company and a Fire Investigator for the New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control with his K-9 partner, Taz. This scholarship honors Tom’s legacy of 28 years of service as a volunteer firefighter and EMT and seeks to support the next generation of firefighters and paramedics.
