Janitorial College Program

23 May 2016 9:30 AM | IJCSA - (Administrator)

Fred Vautour polished a mirror as he cleaned Boston College’s Robsham Theater on Friday.

Vautour said he never could have afforded a college education for five children on his salary of $60,000 a year. His wife, Debra, was a homemaker who now works the front desk at the Waltham Senior Center.

But because Vautour is a BC employee, all five children were able to attend the college tuition-free, which knocked about $51,000 off of BC’s $66,000 annual price tag. After scholarships, Vautour said, each child’s college education cost him about $3,000 per year.

Knowing that five college degrees were in reach kept him going, he said, night after night and year after year.

“It gave me a reason to be here,” Vautour said. “I used to joke with the vice president that I’d actually work for nothing because my kids are here because of that perk. I could care less if they even gave me a raise because my kids came here.
