The New Hampshire College and University Council’s NH Scholars program hosted its annual “Breakfast of Champions” this morning at Manchester Country Club. PHS President Dave Cuzzi, who is a member of the NH Scholars Board of Directors, facilitated a discussion among attendees focusing on developing the next generation of workforce in the state. The discussion centered on two critical issues for NH educators and businesses: emerging workforce expectations and career pathways, and developing a skilled workforce to retain young talent. Cuzzi was chosen because of his deep knowledge of business workforce needs and his history of working with businesses and educators to address workforce needs.
About 100 people attended the annual awards breakfast, which honors those in the community who go above and beyond to bring hands-on learning opportunities to young people. The vent was sponsored by PHS client BAE Systems, the NH Dept. of Education, Unitil, and the NH Learning Initiative.
