I am employed by the State of Connecticut as an Administrative Assistant, 27 years. I enjoy the company of people so much that I decided to sell women's shoes at the New Haven Flea Market in order to socialize. During one of those days, I met a then-current student, Anita Nichols, who told me about Springfield College. That chance meeting has changed my life forever. Anita graduated in May of 2015 and passed away suddenly in July 2015. I learn now that if ever you get a chance to do something nice for someone, do it, because you may not get another chance. I will forever owe Anita my gratitude.
