President Daniel AsquinoA message from the PRESIDENT

Our students are finding career success built on the education and real world experience they receive at Mount Wachusett Community College. 

In this issue, you will read about Ray Worthley, who is putting what he learned at MWCC to use working for NESN covering the Boston Red Sox and the Bruins.  Edwin Encarnación, who graduated from MWCC and went on to earn his bachelor’s and master’s degrees, is now a test engineer for Image Stream Medical.  Diana Russo Catalano, a lawyer working with Alere, Inc., began her pre-law education at MWCC, where she was an honors student and president of the Student Government Association.  Andrea Suarez Alegre and her twin sister Gimena Suarez Alegre both began their educational journey with MWCC while they were in the pre-college GEAR UP program at Fitchburg High School.  Andrea earned her bachelor’s degree and is now an accountant and Gimena plans to pursue her master’s degree.

These are just a few of the success stories that illustrate the power of a college that combines relevant education with real world experience.  Our students benefit from our entrepreneurial mindset.  Because we know that the vast majority of our students live and work right here in our region after they graduate, they carry that entrepreneurial spirit into our workforce. Students can pursue a degree and transfer to a four-year school, or build a career ladder to success beginning with 90-day certificate programs that lead right in to an associate degree or beyond.

To your future endeavors,

Daniel M. Asquino, Ph.D.
