Courtney McQueen of Peabody has been appointed as North Shore Community College’s Student Trustee. McQueen is studying to become a state certified Emergency Medical Technician. She additionally hopes to get accepted into the Health Sciences program for Fall 2014. “I have always loved helping people any way possible, so this medical path seemed like the natural course for me to follow,” Courtney explained.
Courtney’s love of helping others is evidenced in her working as an Orientation Ambassador for the Student Support & Advising Center, helping to introduce new students to the college, leads tours of the Danvers campus, and assists students with registering for classes. In addition, she is a Student Panel Representative for Early Acceptance Dinners, where she speaks to newly accepted students and parents about her experiences and involvement at NSCC and answers questions posed by attendees. Courtney is the student representative on the college’s Curriculum Committee that receives recommendations and takes action on curriculum proposals, develops, maintains, and updates curriculum policies and procedures.
Courtney’s leadership includes her Presidency of the student Program Council, serving as Vice President of NSCC’s Student Government Association, and her most recent appointment to the college’s Board of Trustees. “I am so excited to have become the newest Student Trustee at NSCC. I love this school and everything it stands for, from quality to diversity and everything it can offer students. My experiences have been so positive I can’t seem to stop becoming more involved.
“During my tenure at NSCC I’ve worked my way from being a failing transfer student into an aspiring student leader. I was honored to be asked to step in as student trustee and have been amazed with everything the board handles. I can only hope to live up to my title and represent the student body as best as I possibly can,” McQueen said.
