Alumni Spotlight

Kirk Duda ’12

Kirk Duda ’12 started at QVCC with a determination to work in film. He was not sure if he wanted to pursue a bachelor’s degree but he knew that for him, the best path would be to go directly to college from high school.

His video production experience at Killingly High School inspired his interest in the field, but his classes at QVCC solidified his interest in media production. Kirk’s classmates at the College became his close friends. They created an inclusive atmosphere that helped him learn in an environment that was different than a typical classroom.

Kirk now works as a photojournalist for an ABC News affiliate in North Carolina. He enjoys spreading good news through the station’s Person of the Week and Acts of Kindness. He uses his access to people to make the world a better place. Check out his work at kirkduda.com.

Thank you for sharing the good news, Kirk!
