Annual Student Leadership Banquet Highlights Vibrant Campus Life

Naugatuck Valley Community College (NVCC) students, faculty and staff celebrated the accomplishments of the College’s clubs and activities during its annual Student Leadership and Recognition Banquet held at Aria in Prospect. The event honors students and advisors who have volunteered their time and energy working within the clubs that comprise the Student Government Association (SGA).

Following a social hour in which NVCC’s own a capella group serenaded the packed ballroom, NVCC Director of Student Activities, Karen Blake welcomed attendees and introduced Dan Mathews, Advisor of the Newman Club, who gave an invocation. NVCC President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D. read “Eagle Poem,” by Native American poet Joy Harjo and expressed her gratitude for everyone’s contributions to a fulfilling semester.

Director of Student Activities Karen Blake acknowledged the officers and senators of the SGA.  After a stunning performance by The Terpsichorean Dance Club, choreographed by Chandler Barnes, Blake presided over the recognition of the Club Advisors. There are more than 40 clubs that contribute to the campus culture on both campuses, and club advisors guide activities and progress to help students achieve their goals.

“Our clubs have accomplished so much within the community,” Blake said. “We thank our students, advisors and staff members for making it all possible.”

The recognition ceremony closed with a performance by the Stage Society in which students gave an animated performance of “Light” from the play, Next to Normal.

The annual club awards were presented by SGA Secretary Christopher Gordon and Dean of Student Services, Sarah Gager, who also gave the closing remarks. Students, faculty and staff danced to celebrate the accomplishments of another year at NVCC.
