John H. Budd, Becker College Trustee
“Bearing in mind the amount of student debt incurred by college students today, it is my hope that my gift to Becker will alleviate that burden for one of our students each year”.
John received his B.A. and J.D. from the University of Iowa, then relocated to Worcester in 1966. Since 1998, he has served as of counsel at the Worcester-based law firm Mirick, O'Connell, DeMallie Lougee, LLP. Prior to joining the firm, he was senior vice president, general counsel, and secretary of the Paul Revere Companies for 21 years and a staff attorney for 10 years prior.
He has also served as chair of the Board of Directors for Harvard Pilgrim Health Care; as a trustee for UMass Memorial Health Care; and as chair and former campaign chair of the United Way of Central Massachusetts Investment Committee. John was appointed to the Becker College Board of Trustees in 2011, presently serving as Secretary. In June, John made a five-figure leadership Planned Gift to the College.
