It’s back to school time! That means we will be heading over to Stafford Technical Center to hear all about their students, classes, and adult learning options from Stafford’s new outreach coordinator, Cindy Dunigan!
In her role as outreach coordinator, Cindy is responsible for marketing Stafford to the community, working with sending schools and the Regional Advisory Board as well as coordinating the summer camps and working with the afterschool program, EPIC. Attending community events is also part of the job, so you never know when you might run into her.
Cindy Dunigan grew up in Claremont, New Hampshire and moved to Vermont after getting her Associates Degree. She finished her Baccalaureate degree at the College of St. Joseph in Rutland (2009) in Organizational Leadership. She has experience as a sign maker, advertising sales representative, and a preschool teacher as well as working as a paraeducator for 15 years at Rutland High School. In her role at the high school, Cindy was able to see first-hand the positive effects of Stafford on many students. As a matter of fact, she encouraged her own child to apply to Stafford. He is now a second year student in the STEM program.
When she is not at work Cindy enjoys reading and is an active member of the Union Book Club. When asked what her favorite book is she is apt to answer, “The next one I read.” She also enjoys knitting and is often seen wearing hand knit items. If you happen to see her exploring old cemeteries, ask her about her work with the volunteer organization Find A Grave.
