In 2018, Jim also took on the role of Student Affairs Chair for our Student Sections at UMass- Lowell, during changes within the university department.  Jim oversaw the administration of our GBC Scholarship program through announcing its availability, organizing the judging committee and awarding two scholarships to worthy students in the occupational safety and health field.
