The Lupoli Family Foundation has made a $500,000 pledge to fund a new hospitality and culinary school that Northern Essex Community College plans to open in downtown Haverhill in 2019.
The Lupoli Family’s pledge will jump start an anticipated $1 million endowment for the Lupoli Family School of Hospitality & Culinary Arts which will be named in honor of Sal’s parents, Nicholas and Jeannette Lupoli and his brother James, according to college officials.
The $1 million endowment would include the Lupoli pledge as well as funding from other sources, which the college is currently raising. It would be used to fund a chair or lead faculty for the college’s hospitality and culinary school, college officials said.
"My family is honored to partner with Northern Essex Community College in their efforts to ensure that all students have equal access to a quality education,” said Lupoli. "As I close my eyes each night, I reflect upon my purpose to make my mother, father and brother proud of what Lupoli Companies was able to accomplish by focusing on family, education and culture."
