Veterans Honored at Ceremony Held in NVCC’s Leever Atrium

On November 9th, Naugatuck Valley Community College honored the country’s veterans and staff, faculty, and students who are current military members through a touching, interactive ceremony held in the College’s Leever Atrium. Sponsored by the Veterans Affairs Office and the Veterans Club the ceremony included speeches, singing, poetry, and a dedication of a wreath followed by a moment of silence. Koralin Dains, Secretary of the College’s Veterans Club, and a member of the Army National Guard who was deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 and 2012, greeted the dozens of community members present. Gerald Mullings, a Naugatuck Valley student, led attendees in an emotionally resonant rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner. President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D. provided opening remarks and a reading of Emily Dickinson’s poem, “‘Hope is the Thing with Feathers.” To the College’s 250 student veterans, President De Filippis said, “We hope that in your studies here and in your engagement with us, you find the respect and the solace and the strength, and the hope to come back, if you’ve been in battle, and engage in meaningful ways in a society that is grateful for your service.”

NVCC Community Raises Funds for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

NVCC Community Raises Funds for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

On a bright, warm autumn afternoon, 60 staff, faculty, and students walked to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The walk, held on October 19, began at the College’s Atrium Plaza and was sponsored by the Student Government Association (SGA) and the Student Activities Department of NVCC. The SGA sold t-shirts featuring the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation logo and the NVCC logo on the front and the team name “Chelsea’s Champions” on the back.  The shirts and team were created to honor a student who suffers from the illness and to raise money in her honor.  The shirts, which have been on sale since September, are $10 each and all proceeds raised through their sale will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  Walkers completed one lap around the NVCC campus and celebrated the end of their walk with an after party where refreshments and music by New York-based EDM Trap band Trillmatik were enjoyed. The walk is part of the SGA/Student Activities “give back to the community initiative” which runs the entire academic year.
