President's Circle

Membership into the President’s Circle at Naugatuck Valley Community College represents 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. Circle Ambassadors have the opportunity to attend major college events with the President and/or her Cabinet, and lend voice to their experiences as NVCC students. Applications are now being accepted.

If you are ready to make a difference...

Circle ambassadors are given platforms to directly engage with community leaders, officials, alumni and friends of the College. You will have an opportunity to:

  • make connections
  • build networks
  • further your own pathway toward becoming an active citizen and leader.

Applicants who are selected by the president and accept membership into the President's Circle will receive recognition, a small scholarship and a letter of recommendation from President De Filippis upon successful completion of their 2-semester term and graduation from NVCC.

"One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind"

- Neil Armstrong

Applications are accepted in the spring for high-achieving students wishing to serve as ambassadors for Naugatuck Valley Community College.

More than 100 students gathered with their families on Tuesday, May 27, for Naugatuck Valley Community College's annual Honors Night at the College's Fine Arts Center. Honors Night recognizes students who have distinguished themselves throughout the academic year by excelling academically, demonstrating leadership in their field of study, or engaging with the campus and greater area community.

This year, 92 individual awards were given out, including nine President-to-President Scholarships for Central Connecticut State University, Eastern Connecticut State University, Southern Connecticut State University, Western Connecticut State University, Charter Oak State College, University of Connecticut – Waterbury, Post University and the University of Hartford.

“I am bursting with absolute joy,” said President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D. “We have more than doubled the president-to-president scholarships this year… and it’s a vote of trust in all of you and the work we are doing now at the College," she told the students.

The ceremony also included memorial scholarships and industry awards recognizing students of distinction, including the newly founded Ruth Ann Leever Memorial Scholarship, presented to a student who has shown excellence in the pursuit of Orchestral Music, the Rachel D’Avino Memorial Scholarship, awarded to an outstanding student pursuing a career in applied behavior analysis, and six annual scholarships from The Siemon Company for manufacturing and engineering students.
