MANCHESTER, NH – A scholarship to help students who want to become motorcycle technicians has been endowed at Manchester Community College in memory of motorcycle racer and enthusiast Scott Mullin, who died in a crash at New Hampshire Motor Speedway last August.
Started by his family, the Scott M. Mullin Scholarship Fund will provide need-based financial assistance for MCC students enrolled in the college’s Powersports program and who aspire to work in the motorsports industry.
“Scott was a very close friend of the Power Sports program at MCC,” said professor Marc Bellerose, chair of the Automotive Technologies department at MCC. “He knew the value of an education and how important it was for the industry to have a skilled workforce.”
An expert-level racer, Mullin was 38 when he died Aug. 1. He was survived by his wife, Sarah, daughter Reese and son Chase. He managed family-owned Souhegan Valley Motorsports, a Husqvarna and Kawasaki dealer in Milford, NH. He participated in NorthEast Motorcycle Road Racing.
“Through watching his family ride and race, Scott’s motorcycle passion started at a very young age,” said Scott’s parents, George and Barbra Mullin. “His desire to get into the industry started from day one. When he was in school, there were not any power sports programs, so he had to figure it out on his own.
“Once we started the business and recognized the need for a larger pool of skilled technicians, he took the initiative to work with MCC to recruit and was always more than willing to talk to students. We hope the Scott M. Mullin Memorial Scholarship Fund will open doors for others to start down the power sports path to continue his legacy and his desire to help others.”
