The End of an Era

Frank Meyer, Director of Admissions, retires after 39 years at NHTI

Frank MeyerFrank Meyer started his NHTI career as a faculty member in the mid-1970's when NHTI had just three academic buildings and two residence halls.  He worked in the fledgling Community Education office for a few years before becoming our indefatigable Director of Admissions.

Frank drove thousands, and thousands, and thousands of miles around New Hampshire and throughout New England, visiting high schools, attending college fairs, and interviewing and accepting countless numbers of students.  He has been at the forefront of our tremendous growth and the expansion of our campus.  He has enthusiastically championed the virtues of NHTI, and has lived our Mission, Vision, and Values for all of these years.

Frank says, "It was always a pleasure to represent NHTI because I was convinced of the great educational experiences which faculty and staff provide for all of our students."

We wish him all the best in his future endeavors, which will surely include travel, because there must be a few places on the globe that he has not visited yet!

The Campus Safety Department wants to make the campus community aware that students, faculty and staff are required to have a valid NHTI ID card.  The ID card is important to have with you in the event you are going to be working after hours, need access to a lab for class, want to attend a campus function, etc.  Without a valid NHTI ID card you may be denied access into the area you need!  To obtain an ID card, come to the Campus Safety Department.  Faculty/staff ID’s must be validated by the Safety Department; student validation is done through the Bursar’s Office.
