Student celebrating with diploma at 2022 commencement

NECC Celebrates the Class of 2022

Northern Essex Community College celebrated its 60th Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, May 14, 2022.

This was the first time the college had celebrated with a traditional ceremony since 2019, and, if the broad smiles were any indication, everyone was glad to be back. More than 800 students were recognized and associate degrees and certificates from over 70 academic programs were awarded.

President Lane Glenn opened the ceremony, calling the class of 2022 “one of the most resilient in the college’s 60-year history.” “You have shown that crisis is nothing to fear and even sometimes an opportunity. Likely, you are stronger, more confident, and more determined as a result of the last two years.”

HC Media livestreamed and recorded the ceremony. You can find the recording here.
