At NECC, Bowie is the president of the Bacon Board Gamers, a student board gaming club, and a member of the Board Game Library, which lends games to the community. He also has been published in the school’s literary magazine, Parnassus and is a math tutor at the college’s math center.
Haggar will graduate with an associate degree in Deaf Studies: Sign Language Interpreting in May 2013. She plans to transfer to Framingham State College and earn her bachelor’s degree after graduation. She is a student ambassador and a member of the NECC Student Leadership Development Program, the Student Senate, and the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. Haggar is also the student-elected member of the college’s board of trustees.
The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation Scholarship is for outstanding students who will be transferring from NECC, have a cumulative GPA of 3.5, and have done significant community service.
