Two Technologies Join Forces

RICSAROn April 6, 2015, the Criminal Justice Club hosted the Rhode Island Canine Search and Rescue Team (RICSAR) at New England Tech’s Access Road campus. The event is part of the Club’s quarterly speaker series and was attended by many NEIT students and faculty.

For this event, the Criminal Justice Club extended an invitation to NEIT’s Veterinary Technology students. This workshop was a great opportunity for students from two very different technologies to interact and perhaps pave the way for future collaborations.

Carrie Barna (pictured above), a recent NEIT Criminal Justice Technology graduate, is an active volunteer with RICSAR and was instrumental in bringing the dogs and their handlers to campus. She began her work with RICSAR as a result of her New England Tech Criminal Justine Technology internship.

Student wins 2015 Newman Civic Fellows Award

Antonio Adderley

The Newman Civic Fellows Award honors inspiring college students leaders who have demonstrated an investment in finding solutions for challenges facing communities through out the country.  The Newman Civic Fellows Awards are made possible through the generous support of the KPMG Foundation.

NEIT’s award recipient for the 2015 Newman Civic Fellows Award is Antonio Adderley, a 5th quarter Business Management student. The following are a few statements from Antonio’s application. 

“Since my first time helping out others and the community, I have wanted to continue this experience.  My Service with the Royal Bahamas Defense Force allowed me to grow personally in ways I never dreamed possible.   My life was enriched by helping victims of hurricanes by repairing homes, cleaning beaches and streets of debris, providing search and rescue operations, and working in shelters and food banks to support the victims of natural disasters.  At NEIT, my involvement in the Rotaract Club has helped enrich and support the lives of those less fortunate in the East Greenwich community through my numerous community activities.  I plan to make volunteerism a natural extension of my life as long as I am physically capable of such involvement.  I love to make a positive impact on others.”  Antonio Adderley
