DECD Commissioner Visits the QVCC Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center

Visit to the Quiet Corner Included stop by Commissioner Lehman and Local Officials

A visit to The Quinebaug Valley Community College Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center (AMTC) was part of the Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), David Lehman’s tour through Killingly. Hosted by Killingly Town Manager, Mary Calorio, a QVCC alum, and the Killingly Economic Development Director, Jill St. Clair, Lehman had the opportunity to hear, first-hand, the impact the AMTC has in the community and region.

QVCC Director of Advanced Manufacturing, Steve LaPointe, and Assistant Director, of Advanced Manufacturing, Jodi Clark, provided a tour of the 10,000 square foot center and expounded upon the success of the program and continued demand for graduates by local and regional business partners. While visiting Putnam Plastics and United Natural Foods Inc., in the Killingly Industrial Park, Lehman had the opportunity to meet graduates of the program who offered high praise for the program. LaPointe stated, “Our students and graduates not only have fun learning while learning skills in our programs, they continue to succeed in their real-world experiences. They have careers that have a foundation with what they learned at QVCC. We keep in touch with our graduates and it’s a great feeling to see them succeed and add to the growth of Northeast Connecticut.” LaPointe added, “We have opportunity for additional growth by expanding our programs to Willimantic and hope to see this become a reality sooner than later.”

Calorio stated, “We are an innovative area and are here to help retain our local businesses and help them with expansion and unlocking space for new growth.” St. Clair added, “Growth and expansion stems from education. We have the pieces here and just need to make the connections. This is a special program.”

Also joining in on the visit were Connecticut State Senator Mae Flexer, Northeast Connecticut Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Betti Kuszaj, and Shawn Johnston, a QVCC alum.

Earth Day at QVCC

Earth Day Group Photo

On Monday, we will be hosting our annual Earth Day celebration on campus! From 11-2 there will be activities for students to participate in to learn more about Earth Day. When students make a pledge and write it on the Earth Day Pledge Board, they will receive a free Earth Day t-shirt!

Flower Planting

There will be free food as well, hot dogs, hamburgers, and ice cream from We-Li-Kit Farm. We will have a couple vendors and you can plant your own flower in a QV mug to take home with you!

Trash to Treasure

My favorite part of the Earth Day celebration is the Trash to Treasure tables. People can bring in items to donate and on Earth Day we put out all the items and they are open for people to take for free! If you have items that you would like to donate, the collection is happening today in Room C127 at the Danielson campus from 12-6. I love being able to purge and get rid of the things that I don’t need or use anymore and the bonus is that I can find something that I really love for free in exchange! Don’t miss the Earth Day celebration on Monday, see you there!

Get Involved!

QVCC Acapella

This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to sing with the Acappella club at Voices in Concert. The event was a fundraiser for the QVCC Foundation and also Killingly High School. The show was packed with talented performers from our community. The Foundation also held a silent auction which helped to raise even more money for student scholarships at QVCC. One of the reasons that I love QVCC so much is the amazing support that we receive from our community and Saturday was another great example of that, over 800 people showed up to support the event.

Get Involved

I have been involved in different groups on campus since I started here at QV but this is my first semester with the Acappella club. I have really enjoyed singing with this group and have been able to learn a lot. Getting involved on campus is a great way to make the most of your time at QVCC. While you may not get the same experience as a 4 year school because students don’t live on campus, getting involved in clubs and other student groups gives you a chance to meet new people and try different things that you may not have done before. I have been singing my whole life but I have never sang acappella before. Even though it’s my last semester I am still glad that I was able to join this group and try something new.

If you haven’t joined a club on campus yet, you should check out our club list and find a group that interests you! We have many groups meeting regularly and we are always adding to the list. Not seeing something that interests you? Start your own club! It’s really easy to do and I’m sure you will find others on campus who are interested in joining. All you have to do is find the president and treasurer of the club and ask a faculty or staff member to be your club advisor. Once you have those people, fill out the club form, come to a Student Government meeting and you’re official! Get involved and make the most of your college experience here at QVCC!
