Community Learning Coordinator
David Cruz is the Community Learning Coordinator in OVCS and is happy to be working with a team committed to community service, education and raising awareness about problems facing many citizens in his hometown.
David was born and raised in New London, Connecticut, and participated in many programs throughout the New London community as a youth. In 2010, he earned his B.S. in sports management and minored in business administration at St. John’s University in Queens, New York, where he was also involved in community service projects there and abroad.
Since graduating, he spent almost two years working at the Regional Multicultural Magnet School in New London and interned for eight months for New London Main Street, learning about revitalization and economic development. He was a member of Professional Tutors of America and volunteers during his free time as an assistant coach for a New London Recreation basketball team.
Working at OVCS gives David a unique opportunity to give back to the community where he was raised. He hopes his local knowledge and diverse background further strengthens the relationship between Connecticut College and the City of New London.
