William Maynard-Pimentel Wins Dacon Founders Scholarship

Wentworth Institute of Technology has selected William Maynard-Pimentel, a sophomore in the construction management program, as the winner of Dacon’s Founders Scholarship honoring company founders Richard Kuchinsky, Dennis Leahy, Ron Gagnon and Patricia Canelli. This scholarship is awarded to a full-time undergraduate student focused in construction management or a related field with good academic standing. Preference is given to Eagle Scouts or GoldStar Girl Scouts and the applicant may renew the scholarship in subsequent years of enrollment.  

A native of Rockland, MA William is pursuing a B.S. in construction management with a minor in civil engineering. During summer breaks, William worked as an operations supervisor for a landscaping firm and field engineer with Turner Construction. William was the captain of his high school tennis team, and he now plays for Wentworth men’s tennis team. William is also part of Wentworth’s Construction Management Club. In October 2023, a part of CM Club activities, William participated in Canstruction Boston 2023, a charity event where teams of architects, designers, engineers, and contractors compete to create sculptures made from canned goods and other non-perishable food items-without the use of glue or other adhesives.

“When Dacon began this scholarship in 2014, we sought individuals demonstrating a strength of character in personal integrity, self-discipline and a desire for a career within this industry,” says Kevin Quinn, Dacon’s CEO. “Each year Wentworth identifies remarkable and motivated students such as William. We foresee a bright future ahead for him.”
