The challenge of producing a ready-to-go workforce was the topic of discussion by a panel of area higher-education presidents on April 28 in Keene. AUNE president David Caruso joined Franklin Pierce University president James Birge, River Valley Community College president Steven G. Budd, and Keene State College president Helen Giles-Gee for the Greater Keene Chamber of Commerce talk.

According to an April 29, front-page Keene Sentinel article, it was the first time the presidents, whose combined enrollment exceeds 9,300, have sat together to address community members.
