Pete Chvany Scholarship
It’s the end of an important era at Emerson College: Pete Chvany retired May 7, 2010.
Pete has worn many hats at Emerson, including: film faculty member, soccer coach, EVVYs and EIV advisor, editing supervisor, and most importantly, mentor. We honored Pete’s devotion to Emerson with a farewell reception and a soccer game during Alumni Weekend. In addition, Emerson has established the Pete Chvany Scholarship to ensure that his legacy lives on by providing financial assistance to students with a commitment to the areas of interest that he championed.
