As a student, Bongiorno served an internship with the Concord Police Department, and worked as a corrections officer at MCI-Concord to put himself through school. After graduation, Concord PD hired him as a full-time officer. As a Concord police officer, Bongiorno spent nights and weekends earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Western New England College.

Linda Krasnecki Chemaly – A 1972 graduate of MCC’s Dental Assisting Program, Chemaly grew up in Chelmsford and still lives there. After graduating from Middlesex, she worked as a dental assistant for five years, then earned a bachelor’s degree at Northeastern University.

Her husband, John, and his business partner Gary Sepe, founded Trinity EMS. With the help of Linda’s business savvy and people skills, they have built Trinity into one of the region’s most successful companies.
