NVCC Talent Show hosts Jaime Hammond and Joe Faryniarz (missing: Yolanda Crowder)
Waterbury, Conn. - The December All-College Meeting has a
long-standing tradition of summing up the year's work and acknowledging NVCC staff for their service and dedication to the College.
For years employees have been recognized for years of service and more recently have been singled out departmentally for the special achievements they've inspired over the calendar year.
Perhaps even more famously, however, the meeting has become a showcase for one of the year's greatest events... the highly anticipated and completely voluntary Annual Employee Talent Show.
