MacCalla Makes SISMAT

Ray MacCallaSenior IT major Raymond MacCalla has been accepted into the SISMAT program at Darmouth this summer.  SISMAT is a highly competitive two-week resident program in which students study security, cryptography and related topics with industry and academic experts.  For more information visit

Ray writes:  "I had just moved to New Hampshire. I was delivering pizza to make ends meet, while my girlfriend could finish her education. I had some low level PC certifications, and did some consulting work on the side. I would pass by Bradford Networks [a worldwide security software company with offices in Concord] and think, 'Man that would be a cool place to work. I should really go back to school and get my degree.'

"Eventually my girlfriend graduated and pushed me to go back to school."  At NHTI, Ray met Professor Bill Shurbert. "His classes were no joke, but they challenged me enough to stay interested." Focusing on security topics, Ray was actually able to get an internship at Bradford Networks, and now the SISMAT residency.

"I just want to thank my family and all of the NHTI staff involved for pushing me to continue challenging myself to do bigger and better things," says Ray.  "Thank you all so much for the support and knowledge! I hope to continue to make NHTI proud, and prove their excellence in education."

Court Makes the Cover

Moving in Shadow by Evan CourtCongratulations to Visual Arts major Evan Court, whose piece "Moving in Shadow" (right) has been chosen to be featured on the cover of an upcoming issue (#254) of Fine Woodworking magazine!

Evan writes, "I am a 24 year old, second semester student here at NHTI. Prior to coming here I graduated from North Bennet Street School in Boston, MA, a two year trade school, where I studied furniture making and furniture history. I spent two years after that working out of my studio in Charlestown, MA as a full time studio furniture maker, before deciding to continue my education.

Evan Court"NHTI has been an excellent stepping stone for me since that decision and I plan on earning my associates degree in Visual Arts here. I am hoping to attend Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia, where I would like to earn my bachelor’s degree and eventually my master’s degree in furniture design and art history."
