Lawrence NFOR Honored as Chamber’s Ambassador of the Year

Lawrence NFOR, Business Manager at Mount Wachusett Community College, was recognized as the 2017-18 Ambassador of the Year by the North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce at the Chamber’s 34th Annual Business Meeting on June 14, 2018.

Chamber Ambassadors are valued volunteers to the Chamber. They serve as a public relations branch, as well as assisting the Chamber with communications to new and existing members. Lawrence was voted Ambassador of the Year by his fellow Chamber ambassadors at their recent May meeting.

The Chamber is pleased to recognize Lawrence NFOR for his consistent support and dedication to the Chamber and the community. Lawrence recently received his MBA in Accounting from Fitchburg State University while working full time at MWCC.

“We are so grateful to Lawrence for his unwavering support of the Chamber and our efforts to advance the region,” said Roy Nascimento, president & CEO of the North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce. “His passion and dedication to community involvement help make North Central Massachusetts a better place to live, work and grow a business.”

As Business Manager at Mount Wachusett Community College, Lawrence has developed important leadership skills which have added to his significant value to the community. Working in the Access & Transition office, Lawrence is responsible for applying and managing Federal, State, and other grants secured by the college. In addition to his involvement with the Chamber, Lawrence is also dedicated to his church, First Baptist Church of Westminster, MA, serving as the Worship Leader. Lawrence just recently wrapped up a trip to Washington D.C. where he was advocating for peace in his homeland of Cameroon by trying to get the House of Representatives to make a public statement and galvanize support- saying no to human rights abuses by the Cameroon government.

We thank Lawrence NFOR for his helpful work and commitment. We look forward to seeing where the future takes him in the Chamber and in the North Central Massachusetts community.
