Capital Touts Career Advancement Programs, Downtown Partnership At Legislative Forum

State legislators, city and town officials, students and corporate partners participated in a Town and Legislative lunch forum on March 14th at Capital Community College (CCC).

The forum focused on Capital’s career advancement programs involving The Hartford Financial Services Group and Travelers and a panel of students and graduates. CCC Chief Executive Officer G. Duncan Harris, Ed.D led the discussion and described the college’s role in a “Hartford renaissance” that includes public and private partnerships and community outreach initiatives at the downtown campus on Main Street. “We view the college as a key cog in the movement,” he said.

Sharing their experiences about Capital and careers in insurance and health care were four students and graduates. On the panel were George Annan-Kingsley, an art therapist at the Bloomfield Health Care Center and Gillian Walcott, a community health navigator at Trinity Health Medical Group (Saint Francis Hospital). Annan-Kingsley and Walcott earned certificates in social work and community health at CCC’s School of Work Force and Continuing Education.  Jeffrey Safo-Darko (’19), a Travelers EDGE intern, and Spencer Williams (’19), a  UnitedHealthcare intern,  are completing studies  in the College’s Career Advancement Program  LEARN MORE
