News and Updates For You
Welcome to the monthly e-newsletter for NHTI alumni and community supporters. We want to keep you up-to-date on our academic programs, upcoming events, and let you know how you can support and stay in touch with us. Thank you for being part of NHTI - Concord's Community College.
NHTI Welcome Message
We went back to school on August 31st and although it is not like past Fall semesters at NHTI, we are definitely just as busy as ever. That is why this is a few days late making it into your inbox, sorry.

As everyone is trying their best to adjust to remote learning, health and safety protocols, making new friends over Zoom, or standing 6' apart in line at Capital Commons, NHTI is here for our students. We are offering online programming to keep our students engaged, doing extra outreach through our tutoring and Academic Center for Excellence to help with academic work, and making sure those students with financial needs are supported.

We would not be able to do all of this without our alumni and community supporters. Thank you for taking the time to stay connected to NHTI. We appreciate you!

Alumni Spotlight - Rob Kleiner

Rob is a known man around town, in a good way. When he is not at work at Northeast Delta Dental, or spending time with his family, he can be found volunteering on various non-profit boards working to make the greater Concord area better for everyone.

As a lifelong learner, Rob values the education that NHTI provided him and continues to take classes with us today. You can read his blog post here.

Don't tell Kimball Jenkins Art School about Rob's tree climbing adventure on his wedding day. Shhhhhhh
This 4-part virtual speaker series invites you to explore how mindfulness can help us address challenges that have become central to our society over the last year. Personal and interpersonal insight can help build communities that foster connection, opportunity, health, and fulfillment.

All money raised through this series will support NHTI students through the NHTI Lynx Cupboard food pantry, NHTI Cares emergency fund, and The Presidents Fund book fund.
