Convocation 2015

NHTI 2015 Convocation Speaker Sarah SmileyConvocation is an annual campus-wide event to welcome new and returning students to campus and celebrate the beginning of the new academic year.  On Tuesday, September 15, hundreds of students, faculty and staff gathered to celebrate the beginning of the academic year.  This year's speaker was author and Navy wife Sarah Smiley.  Sarah explained her experience inviting one guest to dinner for each week that her husband was deployed overseas.  She spoke about building your own community and encouraged those in attendance to consider becoming more involved on campus.

Afterwards there was a barbecue and Student Organization fair.  Just the thing for students interested in building their own community and finding interesting things to be involved with on campus.  The event was festive with live music, games, t-shirt painting, plenty of good food and lots of Student Organizations giving out information. Nursing students at info table, three students show off their new t-shirts, students check out the Student Organization tables

Friendly Kitchen 5k a Big Success.

Friendly Kitchen 5K drew participants of all ages who enjoyed the race and the past race celebration.

Friday’s Friendly Kitchen 5K Race was a big success. 220 runners, including three visually impaired athletes, completed the race. Other people walked the 3K fitness walk and more than 25 children ran the fun run. We estimate that close to $10,000 will have been raised for the Friendly Kitchen. The event was wonderful. Paul Hogan did a masterful job of announcing the race.  Professor Mike Moffett gave a moving pre-race speech about the significance of 9/11.  Vice President Steve Caccia was the official race starter.

Mehrdad Meskoob, NHTI Math/Physics Professor The first six finishers were form the NHTI men’s cross country team. Branden McCoo won the race with a time of 16:58. Dylan Tuttle was 2nd at 17:39, Cody Roberge 3rd at 17:41, Ryan Lynch 4th at 18:19, Greg Keilig 5th at 18:16, and Derek Burton 6th at 18:30. The top women finishers included from NHTI women cross country: Raquel Gelinas 2nd at 21:36, Ryleigh Lorimer 5th at 24: 16, Geenel Wells 9th at 26:02, Regan Coyle 21th at  27:10, Julia Glisson 25th at 27:31, and Ruby Jones 35th at 28:54. There were many NHTI faculty and staff who participated in the 5K race. They included :  Chuck Lloyd, Mike Moffett, Tom Foulkes, Veronica Carter, Kristina Lucas, Janet Ercolini, Sarah Herbert, Lucy Ann Zellers, and Tracey Lesser.  Mehrdad Meskoob completed the 3K walk on his birthday.
