NVCC Business Management Grad Sets Sights for Continued Success

NVCC Business Management Grad Sets Sights for Continued Success

Join the Navy or go to college. That was the decision facing Davey Peguero after high school. Considering that no one in his family had attended college and he didn’t know how he’d pay for it, it was a daunting decision.

It was during a chance conversation while playing basketball with an old friend who attended Naugatuck Valley Community College and sang its praises, that Peguero decided he would choose higher learning. “If it wasn’t for that conversation I don’t know what I’d be doing today,” he says. With the help of a Federal Pell Grant, Peguero was soon enrolled at NVCC and regularly spending 14 hours a day on campus.
