Hello, Naugatuck Valley Community College students,
We are finally nearing the end of the spring 2017 semester. As we all know, with warm weather comes the temptation to slack off on our studies. But with exams coming up, I encourage you all to study hard, and don’t lose focus! Still, there’s plenty of opportunities for fun with all the upcoming events the SGA has to offer, such as Spring Fling, and the Leadership Banquet! The SGA has brought some fresh ideas to the table for these events we’re sure you will enjoy. I know I will!
For many of us, me included, it is an emotional time of year. In my case, not only does the end of this semester mean saying goodbye to the class presidency, but saying goodbye to NVCC in general. This is my final semester here at NVCC, and graduation is around the corner.
It has been such a humbling experience to serve as the Student Government Association President. I want to take this chance to thank all the students who voted me in, and those who have worked hand in hand with me! A special thanks to Karen Blake, and Rita Ostrander, my two SGA advisors, and of course, Carlos, Cat, Levi, and Geo, the SGA officers.
Also I’d like to thank those students who have lent a helping hand at all the events! I’ve been able to learn and grow so much with each amazing experience I’ve encountered alongside you all. I wish nothing but the best to all the students I will graduate with this semester, and I wish success to those who will continue to study here at NVCC.
Take advantage of every opportunity this community has to offer, continue to give back and make a difference, and remember, you don’t lose unless you quit! I leave you with a quote by Vince Lombardi, who said, “If you’ll not settle for anything less than your best, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives.”
