Customer Spotlight: Anna Maria College

Each month, we highlight one of our great customers. This month’s Spotlight shines on Anna Maria College!

The college, a small, Catholic college in Paxton, Massachusetts, was founded by the Sisters of St. Ann in 1947, said Deacon John Franchi. The student body comprises about 1,000 undergraduate students and another 500 graduate students. Among its signature programs are Fire Science, Nursing, Criminal Justice, Forensics, and Law, among others.

In January, the college began planning “Operation Patriotism,”  a campus-wide 20th anniversary tribute to 9-11. The planners decided to include custom challenge coins for participants, Franchi said.

“I had 10 subcommittees working on the tribute. My field coordinator, Fran Leahy, researched your firm and worked with your folks to develop this excellent piece,” he said of the coins we produced. “The coin was well-received by both military and civilians.”

One of the coins was used for the coin toss in the football game that followed the ceremony.

Deacon Franchi said this was the first time the college had done business with TJM, and that he was pleased with the outcome.

“I will continue to order challenge coins, if needed, from you in the future,” he said. “Thank you for the great service you provide.”

Thank you, Deacon Franchi, for your kind words. We are honored to have been able to play a role in Anna Maria College’s tribute ceremony.
