Led for the first time by EASTCONN’s new Executive Director Gary S. Mala, the meeting began with a convivial welcome, as EASTCONN executive board members joined staff to hear a reading by an Arts at the Capitol Theater (ACT) award-winning student poet, and a personal story of success from ACT’s student body president. Quinebaug Middle College’s (QMC) valedictorian shared details of her inspiring personal and academic journey, while another QMC student presented his student team’s award-winning Eastern Advance Manufacturing Alliance (EAMA) video, highlighting a local manufacturer. Afterward, the EASTCONN executive board convened for its annual business meeting.
