In Remembrance of Greg Hager

"W. Gregory Hager, of Burlington CT and formerly of Washington, PA died Saturday, April 25, 2015, in Hartford, CT. He received a Masters Degree from the University of Ohio and began a successful and vibrant teaching career at Northwest Connecticut Community College (NCCC) in Winsted, CT which spanned 35 years. In addition to his professorial career, Greg was a longtime union activist, especially in the Congress of Connecticut Community Colleges (4Cs) where he was a member since the mid 1970s until his retirement. He served for decades on the union's Executive Board as one of its vice presidents, as a member of many of its committees and as one of its prime activists organizing campus chapters around the state, and he marched on many picket lines in support of fellow Connecticut state employees."


 

Donations to the "Hager Scholarship Fund" are being accepted. Make checks payable to NCCC and write "Hager Scholarship Fund" in the memo area of the check. Checks can be mailed to Northwestern CT Community College, c/o Hager Scholarship Fund, attn.: Todd M. Bryda, 2 Park Place East, Winsted, CT 06098.
