NECC Homecoming is Saturday, October 14

Submitted by on September 27, 2017 – 3:24 pm

For the first time in many years—maybe ever—Northern Essex Community College is hosting a Homecoming on Saturday, October 14, open to everyone including faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the community.

The event will be held from noon to 4 pm on the Haverhill Campus and there will be fun for all ages.

Highlights will include a doubleheader featuring the NECC Knights—one of the best community college baseball teams in the country— against Southern Maine Community College with games at 10 a.m. and noon; games and face painting for children; a performance from 12:30 to 2 pm by up and coming country music performer Thomasina Glenn of Amesbury, who was recently featured at the Amesbury Country Music Festival; and a free cookout from noon to 2 pm.

Up and coming country performer Thomasina Glenn, daughter of NECC President Lane Glenn, will perform at NECC’s Oct. 14 Homecoming.

Admissions representatives will also be giving tours of the newly renovated Spurk Building and answering questions about college programs and the enrollment process.

Northern Essex students will have the opportunity to win a semester of free textbooks by competing in the half-court basketball challenge.

“We want to bring families on our beautiful campus to celebrate the fall,” said Mike McCarthy, NECC’s vice president of administration, who recently began overseeing college athletics.  “Our plan is to launch homecoming this year, and then grow it in the years ahead.”

Those interested in attending are asked to register online, by visiting the college website and filling out this form.
