Alumni: “Mission Re-Connect” is Going Strong

New England Tech All Class ReunionMembers of NEIT’s Alumni Association Steering Committee have been busy at work as they design and develop new events and workshops to benefit the college’s graduates. “Mission Re-Connect” was developed last year as an effort to re-unite NEIT grads with one another and with the college. Steering Committee members have much to say about the importance of establishing a vibrant Alumni Association.

Chris Harrington, a 2000 Associate in Science degree graduate in Internet Communication Technology, is now an independent web consultant who stated, “An active Alumni Association is important to keep goals front and center for the students.  Your degree does matter! I believe in the college since it changed the direction of my life.”

Courtney Crone earned her Associate in Science degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant Technology in 2003, a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management in 2007, and a Master of Science degree in Occupational Therapy in 2012.  Now an Occupational Therapist, Courtney stated, “It is important for alumni to be active in the school community as it will help the college continue to grow. Students having access to potential mentors and the opportunity to network are important resources that members of the Alumni Association can provide.”

Michelle A. Pope, a 1990 Bachelor of Science degree Computer Science graduate, is now a Chief Operations Officer. Michelle stated, “An Alumni Association allows for the ability to promote the success NEIT has in the development of career professionals. The association can provide the ability to connect and collaborate with peers within and across various industries and states through online collaboration, social networking, and content sharing.”

Tim Danielson graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Architectural Building Technology.  Tim stated, “We need to start educating students and graduates on the benefits and importance of the Alumni Association and establish programs for continuing education and ‘life’ benefits for alumni and their families. There are several existing benefits available to alumni, and by expanding the number of active members, we could increase the benefits being offered.”

NEIT graduate, DeNucci is magazine cover story

TommyDeNucci

From IMAGINE Magazine:

Tommy DeNucci was born in Cranston, RI in 1984 and at thirty he is a writer, actor, director and producer. He also has a five picture deal with Universal. He happens to be charismatic and lights up a screen. The camera likes him and so does the boom operator – a voice with resonance. He also expresses himself well. His mentor and creative partner in film production Chad Verdi says of Tommy, “his single most interesting character trait that I genuinely admire about Tommy is his willingness to always test others and make them better.” Before he was thirty he directed three films that received worldwide distribution. At present DeNucci and his team are editing ALMOST MERCY, the film he shot in eighteen days in May at twenty different locations in the Ocean State.  According to Tommy the film has a bigger feel than it should have considering its budget as he pushed the look he says as far as humanly possible.  Tommy recommends this to fledgling filmmakers, “Show up early and be the last to leave. Do the dirty work in the beginning. Learn the process from the very bottom, try to get in every circle you can and don’t think your ‘less than’ when you work from the bottom up…just go for it.”
