Squillante honored for community service

MBA President-elect Denise Squillante, a Fall River native, was honored with the John S. Brayton Jr. Memorial Community Service Award by the Fall River Chamber of Commerce on June 17.

Squillante was one of eight to receive the award - named for a member of one of Fall River's pioneer families - during a banquet at the Venus de Milo restaurant in Swansea. The chamber selected Squillante for the honor because of her strong commitment to the community, much like Brayton, who championed the strengths of Southeastern Massachusetts and helped lead tourism on the waterfront.

Highly involved with efforts to address domestic violence in Fall River, Squillante is a former member of the board of directors at the Katie Brown Educational Program, YMCA-Fall River and Domestic Violence Task Force. In addition, she is a former visiting lecturer at Bridgewater State College and Bristol Community College.
