HOLYOKE — To Elaine Marieb, few things in the world mattered more than learning and helping others.
She showed that commitment through one of her final gifts: a $1 million donation to Holyoke Community College.
Announced Tuesday at a Board of Trustees meeting, the gift from the Elaine Nicpon Marieb Foundation will go toward HCC programs that support nontraditional age students. The gift will have a major impact, as one-third of HCC’s student population is over 25.
