Just before Labor Day, NSCC faculty and staff convened for two days of professional development, speakers and strategic planning, followed by Convocation— the official beginning of the new academic year. Inspirational guest speaker Dr. Robert Johnson, president of Becker College in Worcester, talked about making a difference in students’ lives and building a vision that continues NSCC’s 50-year legacy of excellence.
One of the highlights of Convocation was the distribution of NSCC’s first official college pennant. If you’d like to show your school pride with a North Shore Community College pennant, contact the Alumni Office for yours!

Beginning the new year
The new academic school year is underway and with it comes the excitement of fall semester and the buzz of a new school year, a feeling that never gets old.
NSCC alum and trustee on the North Shore Board of Trustees, Lesley Peters ’97, was here volunteering, greeting new students and assisting students with questions as they arrived for the first evening of classes. Lesley said, “It was the best part of my day… I love the energy and would swap places with them in a heartbeat. I am just giving back what I received.”
