Mike Flynn, who earned both his undergraduate (1982) and graduate ('83) degrees from Western New England, was inducted into the Downes Hall of Fame as a contributor.
The Wilbraham, Mass. native and owner/CEO of Hampden Engineering Corporation in nearby East Longmeadow has been a longtime supporter of Western New England athletics and is a member of the University's Board of Trustees. Flynn's support has been essential in the development of both the outdoor athletic facilities and the Alumni Healthful Living Center. Most recently, his contributions were instrumental in the opening of the Flynn Family Golden Bear Pavilion last fall, which is named in his honor.
Flynn's generosity and leadership have been integral to the success of Western New England athletics over the years.
