Fifty three years ago Capital Community College then known as Greater Hartford Community College opened its doors at a two-story Sequassen Street building in Hartford’s Colt Park. From an opening enrollment of 339 students more than 300,000 have enrolled and many have moved on to academic and career success.
In 2019 the College and the CCC Foundation created the Alumni Wall of Fame to recognize alumni from all decades who have achieved success and made an impact on their community and profession. A group of five inductees were recognized at the 14th Changing Lives Gala and the Foundation intends to make honoring distinguished alumni an annual event.
Nominations are invited for a Class of 2020 Alumni Wall of Fame inductees.
Capital graduates are often the first members of their family to make it to higher education and the career opportunities that come with it. The stories of successful graduates can inspire continuing and new students to excel.
A selection committee will consider each individual focusing on but not limited to the following:
- career and professional achievements and contributions to his or her field or occupation;
- past or present service to Capital Community College or its founding institutions;
- leadership and public and community service.
Nominees must have completed a minimum of two semesters (24 credits) to be eligible.
Alums from both Capital (Greater Hartford Community College) and Hartford State Technical College are eligible. The deadline for nominations is July 1, 2020.
Alumni Hall of Fame inductees will be announced at the 15th Changing Lives Gala, CCC’s signature event for scholarships and student success, on Friday, October 23, 2020 (Tickets and Sponsorship opportunities available April 1, 2020)
