Six Students Inducted Into Elite President’s Circle

Waterbury, Conn. - Six students were inducted into the first ever President’s Circle at Naugatuck Valley Community College on Friday, March 25.

Membership into the President’s Circle is the highest honor a student may receive while matriculating at the college. These students represent a select group of outstanding achievers who serve as the college’s student ambassadors, attending major college events with the President and/or her Cabinet, and lending voice to their experiences as NVCC students.

This year's inductees include:

  • David Thomas Best, business management
  • Yisel De Oleo-Gregory, liberal arts and sciences
  • Elizabeth Aida Feola, visual and performing arts
  • Minerva Maldonado, liberal arts and sciences
  • Allison E. Messier, nursing
  • Justyna Sadlowski, general studies

“When I was interviewed for this position the search committee wanted to know how I make administrative decisions,” said President De Filippis. “The answer is simple and it hasn’t changed. I do the right thing for the students. The President’s Circle is a way for me to keep the voice of the students in my ear.”

Members of the President’s Circle are given platforms to directly engage with community leaders, officials, alumni and friends of the College. Overall, membership represents an opportunity for these students to make connections, build networks, and further their roles as active citizens and leaders.

Kathy Taylor, Esq., director of the NVCC Academic Center for Excellence, served as the event’s keynote speaker, reminding students to let their values guide their futures and decision-making.

“It's hard to live by your values if you don't know what they are,” said Taylor. “You need to create your life’s philosophy and stick to it.”
