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.

NVCC Strategizes to Support America’s College Promise

NVCC Strategizes to Support America’s College Promise

A century ago, the notion of providing free high school education to all American students was a controversial one. Today, there is a similar dialogue occurring about a community college education.

The nonpartisan America’s College Promise campaign seeks to establish two years of free community college education for responsible students throughout the United States. While President Barack Obama brought renewed energy to the goal during his 2015 State of the Union address, free, universal community college education was proposed nearly 70 years ago by President Harry S. Truman.
