Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester President & CEO, Bob Scannell, and wife, Mary Kinsella Scannell, VP of Education at Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester both received the Boston Irish Honors this past October for their dedicated work in the Dorchester community.

The Dorchester Reporter describes, “Bob Scannell and Mary (Kinsella) Scannell have spent their adult lives in service to the families and children of Boston’s largest neighborhood. They are the heart and soul of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Dorchester, where they serve as president and vice-president, respectively. While raising a beautiful family of their own, the Scannells have essentially become surrogate parents to thousands of kids and teens in the city. Together, they have created a safe haven for city kids to learn, play, stay healthy, and prepare for higher education and careers— all while having the time of their lives. The Scannells exemplify the best qualities of our Irish-American ideals: selflessness, humility, and a resolve to stay the course through adversity.”

Congratulations Bob & Mary!
