NVCC Hosted Annual Alumni Speakers’ Panel

Naugatuck Valley Community College hosted its second annual alumni speakers’ panel featuring a panel of 3 graduates. The 2019 Alumni Speakers’ Panel included John DiCarlo, Director, Municipal Shared Services, Naugatuck Valley Council of Government; David Love, Team Lead, Edgewood Chemical Biological Center; and Mari-jean Morelli, RN, BS., Senior Case Manager, Alexion Pharmaceuticals. The speakers began their stories from their days at NVCC and all shared in common the theme of empowerment.

NVCC President Daisy Cocco De Filippis thanked the speakers for generously sharing their stories. “This evening is a fine example of the generous engagement of NVCC alumni. Our alumni serve as role models and as symbols of hope for a brighter future for our students and are proud ambassadors of the good and generous work that continues to take place on our campuses.”

The event opened with a reception and art exhibit by NVCC Alumni artists, curated by Amanda Lebel, Assistant Professor of Art. Consistent with the theme of leading by example, the mixed media art exhibit featured works by alumni who produced art after graduation from NVCC. Artists included Mads Sheikh, Joshua Poole, Beth Edwards, Angel Bleggi, Sarah Kushwara, Isabella Hernandez, Jordan Antrum, Quiana Stanley, Emily Mansi, David Flook, and David Rascati.

Event organizer, Angela Chapman, Associate Dean of Development and Alumni Relations, commented on the event, “It was an evening of inspiration filled with beautiful art by our alumni.  The panel of alumni speakers, influential leaders in their businesses and in the community, provided role models from whom students learned work skills, confidence, and the importance of believing in yourself. I am proud to say that we achieved the goal of this event, which is to inspire our students, alumni and the community.”
