Inspiring Stories of Alumni & Students
Some are accomplished professionals. Others are recent graduates. Each story is unique, and yet they are united by common themes: determination, leadership, a commitment to giving back to the NECC community, and to others.
Outstanding Alumni Award
The annual Outstanding Alumni Award recognizes a NECC graduate who has achieved career-related success, is active in the community, and/or has exemplified active support for the college’s efforts. Nominations are accepted on an annual basis and are reviewed by the NECC Alumni Board Awards Committee, with President Lane Glenn approving their recommendation.
If you know of an outstanding alum or current graduating student, please nominate them for a future award.
We are no longer accepting nominations for 2023. The next award cycle will commence in spring 2024.
Outstanding Student Award
Each year, NECC’s alumni community honors a graduating student who exemplifies an extraordinary commitment to academic achievement and community service. Nominations are accepted on an annual basis and are reviewed by the NECC Alumni Board Awards Committee, with President Lane Glenn approving their recommendation. The selected recipient will be recognized at the college’s annual commencement ceremony.
