Amesbury Woman Named NECC Student Trustee
Kelsey Terry of Amesbury has been elected the student representative to the Northern Essex Community College Board of Trustees.
A 2011 graduate of Amesbury High School, she is majoring in biology, psychology, and philosophy. She hopes to become a veterinarian clinical pathologist.
The 21-year-old has been very involved with campus life since enrolling three years ago. She has served two terms as the executive program chair on the NECC Student Senate Haverhill campus, vice president of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, student representative of the finance committee, and presidential ambassador through the NECC leadership program.
In addition to working as a work-study student in the NECC math department, she is a math center tutor.
“I believe staying involved can increase the overall quality and experience of my educational journey,” she says. “I am ambitious and eager to help the students as well as gain a positive experience working with other student leaders on campus to see positive growth around campus. I am genuinely so happy to be here and am already passionate about everything to do with Northern Essex.”
The NECC Board of Trustees includes nine members who are appointed by the governor of the state to a maximum of two five-year terms as well as an alumni-elected member, who also serves a maximum of ten years, and a student trustee who serves for two semesters. Terry will serve for 2014/2015.
