Goodwin College River Campus Dedication

Today was the dedication ceremony for the new Goodwin College River Campus in East Hartford, Connecticut. Goodwin has already had dramatic growth and is in the early stages of a major expansion. The college has made an impressive number of investments in the East Hartford community and has plans for more. The River Campus is located near the Glastonbury line on the site of an old oil storage farm. It is wonderful to see a brownfield site turned into something much more positive. This first building is the centerpiece of a strategy to establish a leading educational institution. 


I know a lot of people involved with the Goodwin story, including the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Frank Amodio, the Vice Chairman, Mary Beth Reid, and of course, the Founding President, Mark Scheinberg. Mark is one of the most talented entrepreneurs that I know. Much has been said about his vision, which is legendary, and the remarks at today’s ceremony focused on his leadership. He is a big idea guy and Goodwin is his baby. In the beginning, the school was a business, but he and his staff, with the support of the trustees, transitioned Goodwin to non-profit status, opening it up for a tremendous amount of state and federal funding. That funding has fueled the growth. Today was a happy day for East Hartford, a community that has been down on its luck for a long time. Horst Engineering moved to East Hartford during its heyday in 1950, but it seems as if it has been downhill ever since. With our 41 Cedar Street plant expansion, we have demonstrated our commitment to the town. It is nice to see that Goodwin College has demonstrated their commitment too.

@trailrunningmom shed no tears when thunder and lightning turned race 3 of the Winding Trails Summer #Triathlon Series into a #Duathlon #teamhorstsports #hardrock100 is only 96 miles more than the 4 miles she ran tonight with the five mile #mountainbike in between. #trailrunning #pursuitstrong #pursuitfitness Start of the @root66raceseries #DomnarskiFarm Junior 12-18 year old race. #root66raceseries #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #mountainbiking #mountainbike Beautiful June day in #Massachusetts For me, the #westrocksuperprestige highlight is always the youngest junior girls and boys. Here is the start of last night's Junior 9-11 year old Short Track #mountainbike race. This is the next generation of #cycling enthusiasts. @the_ccap #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstspikes #mountainbiking 🚵‍♀️🏆❤️ Not bad. Third place in the series for #singlespeed division after doing two of the four #westrocksuperprestige #mountainbike races. Fun just to ride strongly. #teamhorstsports #horstspikes @horsteng #mountainbiking @seven_cycles #sevencycles Incredible June night. One day after the #solstice for the #westrocksuperprestige finale. @the_ccap @horsteng #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #mountainbiking #solstice #railtrail ride:  #teamhorstjuniorsquad #teamhorstsports #hopriverstateparktrail #mountainbike The second (our first) #windingtrails Summer Off-Road #Triathlon Series race of the year was a big success. Three Livingston's raced including @trailrunningmom and the first "Grand Feast" of the season with the Schulz Clan helped us refuel. #teamhorstsports #mountainbiking #trailrunning I ran the #greylocktrailrace on #fathersday and @trailrunningmom loosened her legs after #manitousrevenge by running the 5K with Little D. Shep took 5+ minutes off of last year's time. #mountgreylock The Western Massachusetts Athletic Club had to share #greylockglen with the #harrypotter festival, which was kind of crazy. It was a weird combination of people. I'm sticking with he  #trailrunning community. @trailrunningmom finished #manitousrevenge 54 miles in 14:41:32. Fantastic! She is pumped and primed for #hardrock100 next month. #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders #pursuitstrong #pursuitfitness #trailrunning @ultraspire #ultraspire @altrarunning #altrarunning #ultrarunning #catskillsmountains 🏃🏻⛰
