Community College Officials Present Case To Elected Officials

I attended the Friday January 20 breakfast at Great Bay Community College that included major employers who talked about the relationships they've made with New Hampshire community colleges.

Seacoast employers including Sig Sauer, Safron, Albany Composites and Exeter Health Care Systems explained their partnerships with community colleges and how important it was for these schools to help provide a workforce that is ready to go to work in a fast paced technology based world of today,

Community college Chancellor Ross Gittell cited a commitment to focusing on a student's "career and purpose" starting in high school, then carrying it forward into the community college system and then, perhaps, to the university level.

Our community colleges are an essential part of New Hampshire's educational infrastructure and are critical to attracting and keeping major employers in our state.
