The distinguished panel includes Brent Robertson, co-founder and executive creative director of award-winning marketing and creative consultancy Fathom; Charita Johnson, vice president of production migration at ESPN; and Jay DeFrank, vice president, Pratt & Whitney Communications.

For parents and teachers interested in learning more about social media and how to connect with younger generations online.
The trends of today are Facebook and Twitter, but these platforms are just the result of a greater mindshift that is transforming how we interact. While the younger generations are driving many of these changes, we have an opportunity to learn from each other and make our own rules in the online world. Keynote is Suzi Craig, published author, grassroots marketer, and director of marketing & engagement for award-winning marketing and creative consultancy Fathom.

Tunxis Community College recently presented Tunxis student Angela Pike with an iPod Touch on behalf of Ed2Go, the College’s online continuing education course provider.
Pike, who was chosen at random by Ed2Go, has taken 15 Tunxis Ed2Go online continuing education courses since 2008.
“Online courses are very convenient, especially since I work two jobs,” said Pike, of Southington, whose full-time job is administrative assistant for Beekley Corporation’s sales team in Bristol. “My courses have helped me a lot at work, and I’m hoping the new skills I’ve learned will help me land a promotion.”
Tunxis offers over 300 online Ed2Go courses each semester through Tunxis Workforce Development and Continuing Education. Registrations for online courses with start dates of October 21 and November 11 are still being accepted.
Tunxis Community College is located at the junction of Routes 6 and 177 in Farmington. For more information on online continuing education courses, visit Ed2Go.com/tunxis on the Web, or call 860.773.1450.

The Silent Witness Exhibit, a display which is part of a national movement to increase awareness of domestic violence, will be on view October 9-16 at Tunxis Community College in the Administration Building main lobby to commemorate National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
The display features 13 life-sized plywood figures painted red, 11 of which represent Connecticut women who died as a result of domestic violence in 1996.
The first silent witness display was created in 1990 in Minnesota, and has grown as the initiative has expanded to other states. The goal of the Silent Witness National Initiative is to reduce the number of domestic murders to zero by 2010.
The display is on loan from the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
