success stories

Josiah Roberts from Waterbury, Connecticut

Josiah was home schooled and was unsure of where he fit into the educational system.  He began at Naugatuck Valley Community College and through a cooperative project worked with other students from around the state that looked for better ways to help patients transfer from wheelchair to bed.  The result of his experience convinced him that he wanted to pursue studying mechanical engineering; after completing two years at NVCC he has successfully transferred into a four-year bachelors program at Central Connecticut State University.

Wesley Hipolito from enfield, connecticut

Wesley had a difficult time with math in high school but everything changed after he took his first machining class at Asnuntuk Community College.  Seeing the way equations could be used to make things helped him see its practical uses.  He soon started a program in machining technology and was matched up with an internship at Flanagan Industries, a supplier of complex machined components used in aerospace and land based turbines.  Now, after almost three years of working at Flanagan, he has become an integral part of Aerospace's young technician workforce.
