NVCC Graduates Recruit NVCC Students at Career Expo

(Waterbury, CT) -Approximately 30 employers were represented at this year's Career Expo to help students plan their career paths. Of those 30 representatives, nearly half were NVCC alumni!

Lt. Brian Newman of the Naugatuck Police Department graduated from NVCC in 1999 as a criminal justice major but one of his most vivid memories is of Professor William H. Foster III who taught his public speaking course. "You wouldn't know it now but I started off introverted," said Lt. Newman. "When you're a police officer you have to be willing to talk to people, so, what that course taught me really sticks out in my mind."

Federal Agent Caolan Scott got his start at NVCC in 2005 before he was deployed to Afghanistan in 2006. Though he ultimately transferred to Manhattan College to earn his degree upon returning, he's thankful he got his start at NVCC. "I wasn't sure what I wanted to do when I first started college which is why I decided on community college," said Agent Scott. "When I transferred, nearly all of my credits came with me which allowed me to pick up right where I left off."

Cheryl Woodruff, human services, Allyson Dellaquilla, human services (May 2013), and Leah Zukauskas, early childhood education, have at least three things in common: a passion for helping others, an associate degree from NVCC and work experience at Naugatuck Head Start. Head start is a free early childhood education program for Naugatuck residents who fall within the federal income guidelines for aid.
