Mr. Pavia was very active in charity efforts for Camp Good Days and Special Times.  He demonstrated courage, caring, and compassion for others until he lost his battle with cancer in 1992 at the age of 54.  Pete Pavia's tradition of courage and excellence is exemplified at MCC.  Each year, two scholarships are awarded in his honor to deserving student-athletes at MCC.
