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
Welcome to our 1st monthly e-newsletter of 2020! I know that we are in February but January was such a blur. Better late than never.

We are going green (including my wardrobe) and will no longer be printing and mailing newsletters. We hope that a monthly e-newsletter will help us stay better connected, save money, and be less of an environmental impact. Win-win-win.

This email is full of updates, events, and news to keep you connected to NHTI, our programs, and our students. Take a few minutes to see what is going on and how you can get involved.

If there are things you would like to see highlighted in this e-newsletter, please let me know.

Sincerely,
Laura Scott
Director of Alumni & Development
Academic Program Spotlight - Early Childhood Education
The National Association for the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC) Commission on the Accreditation of Early Childhood Higher Education Programs announced that NHTI was granted first-time accreditation of its Associate of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education

Diana Menard, Department Chair of Child and Family Studies shares that “achieving this accreditation helps demonstrate our important work in developing strong students to enter the Early Childhood field, which in turn supports working families and provides stability to employers around the state.”

Our program is training and supporting the workforce of tomorrow!
