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.

I never post about food. However, this is the second time this week that I’m posting about food. These #vegan dishes at Empress by @theprivegroup were awesome. #instavegan #singapore Everything worked out fine for @trailrunningmom After a little stress, they had her race packet and bib number at the @metasprintseries venue and she kept it upright on the bike! 🚴🏽 She was very pleased with 2nd place 🏆 in her age group at her first road #Duathlon.🏃🏻There are no mountains ⛰ and there isn’t much singletrack in #singapore but it’s still a great city for endurance sports. It looked like there were more than 1,500 athletes at the 3K/18K/3K race with LOTS of kids too. Great vibe! #triathlonsg #teamhorstsports 🇺🇸 Our kids may recognize this great Shoppes @marinabaysands feature from six years ago. I had forgotten how cool it was. #singapore #marinabaysands First time on a road bike for @trailrunningmom In advance of her first ever road duathlon @metasprintseries I taught her some tips & tricks including the do's/don'ts of shifting strategy, cornering, blocking (not), drafting (not), passing, flying mount/dismount, etc. It was fun! Even though she was on a "rental" too, I couldn't keep up on my "steed." #triathlonsg #singapore #teamhorstsports @thecheryltan #cheryltan #singapore #singapore Name those tunes. 11-year-old Feng E is making a name for himself in Asia and beyond. #guitar #fenge #singapore 🎸 @trailrunningmom led #yoga at #ypoedge #singapore 

@ypoglobal #yogini Tremendous #vegan dinner @metasingapore Without a heads up, Chef Sun and his team whipped up an amazing seven course + three “snacks” meal for @trailrunningmom and me, that was worthy of their @michelinguide star. We sat at the counter and watched every step in the process. Chef said that with advanced notice (of our diet), he “would have done better.” We appreciated his perfectionism, but it was just fine. #metarestaurant #instavegan #michelinguide #singapore
