Our mission is to serve the Manchester community and that includes helping adults earn a high school degree, or learn English, or become a citizen -- or, in many cases, even get a job. We were pleased to last week host the Manchester Area Chamber of Commerce's monthly "Coffee Connection." Companies in Manchester and throughout the state need trained, qualified workers and the programs and support we offer are helping to create a stronger workforce, which benefits everyone. We have some photos from the event below (and more on the district Facebook page) and look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship with the local business community.
