Congratulations to the NECC Class of 2014!
Saturday, May 17 was a very special day for the 1200 graduates who received associate degrees and certificates from Northern Essex Community College.
In his commencement address, Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera told graduates to “celebrate” and “then get back to work.” Read his speech.
The student speaker, Marie Phillips an Early Childhood Education major from Haverhill, shared her own story and encouraged graduates to follow their bliss. Read her speech.
