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
As the year comes to a close, I look back at the start of 2020 and am amazed by all that we have witnessed. This year has not turned out like any of us thought but we have grown and learned.

We learned how to teach courses remotely and made sure that we were providing a high-quality education, even if it was over zoom. We grew to understand the differences our student have in access to technology, health care, and safe housing and stepped in to provide assistance to make sure their educational pursuits didn't suffer. We figured out that we can still smile and show compassion while wearing a mask.

As we enter 2021, we all have hopes and dreams of "going back to normal" but I also look forward to NHTI continuing on this path of learning and growing.

Thank you for taking the time to stay connected to NHTI. We appreciate you!

Please take 5 minutes (really, only 5 minutes) to provide feedback for this process. Thank you!

If you are not an NHTI alum, although we value your feedback, please do not fill out this survey. You can always email me feedback, I would love to hear from you.

Alumni Spotlight - Eynas Jarrar

I had the pleasure of getting to know Eynas (General Studies/2020) while she was a student at NHTI through her many leadership roles. She was very involved with Student Senate, eventually becoming Senate President, as well as many other clubs and activities.

She was always supportive of others and willing to lend a helping hand, which is why her current employment as a contract tracer during these challenging times did not surprise me one bit.

Please read about Eynas and how NHTI helped her find her path.
