Last month, 30 NH school counselors got together at Manchester Community College and had a terrific interactive experience learning firsthand about 21st century careers and career readiness.  The reviews of this event were hugely positive (see attached on page 3-4).  Round #2 is on Election Day, November 8th in Lebanon, NH.  We will be touring and meeting leaders of Hypertherm Corp. and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital.

  • 8:20 am Arrive Lebanon at Hypertherm
  • 8:40 am Tour of HyperthermCorporation (cutting edge high tech advanced manufacturer of plasma cutters) Lebanon, NH
  • 11:40 Lunch
  • 12:30 pm Meeting and information sessions with Sarah Currier (Director, Workforce Development) of Dartmouth Hitchcock on their apprenticeship program where employee are demonstrating performance measures associated with competencies (assessed by doctors).
  • 1:30 pm Debrief and Process
  • 2:20 pm Leave Lebanon (OK leave earlier if needed)

Last month Mark Holden (ABC), Pete McNamara (NHADA), Mike Somers (NHLRA), Emily Gagnon (ex of Albany / Saffron), Chancellor Ross Gittell (CCSNH), and President Susan Huard (MCC) really set a high bar.  The dialog was tremendous — and energetically went both ways.  We want to keep the momentum.
