President Hartleb Joins Achieving the Dream
Jim Tschectelin, NECC’s Achieving the Dream coach, reported that President Hartleb has been accepted to be an Achieving the Dream coach after his retirement from the college this summer. “He will be working with two colleges,” said Tschectelin, “And his personality and experience will be wonderful.”
Northern Essex is now in the fourth year of a five-year grant from Achieving the Dream, a national effort to help more community college students succeed, with a special focus on students of color and low-income students. The college receives $100,000 a year to develop and measure strategies designed to help students successfully graduate from college.
