My name is Alexandria Reid. I am a military veteran, and I am a welding student at Asnuntuck Community College. Asnuntuck has changed my life. With the help of many faculty and staff, I have achieved personal, professional and financial goals that would otherwise have not been attainable. The instructors that I have encountered are some of the most selfless and motivating people I have ever had the privilege of learning from. I have watched all of them get excited when we ask to try new processes or for instructions on new machines. They thrive on teaching and we know that we have the resources in our instructors to accomplish our educational goals.
