NECC Administrator to Present Travel Lecture at Reuben Hoar Library
Setting your sights on vacation can be hard when high costs come in to play — but traveling the world doesn’t have to break the bank.
Equipped with the right tips and tools, you can potentially save thousands in travel expenses, according to Marcy Yeager, executive director of PK-12 partnerships and international studies at Northern Essex Community College. Through her upcoming lecture “Jet Setting 101: you can see the world on a budget,” Yeager, a travel enthusiast, will share a variety of means through which anyone can make vacations more affordable – from breaking flights down into segments, to signing up for tour-based language courses, to eating local, and much more.
Marcy Yeager holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Northeastern University and a Master of Science degree from the University of New Hampshire. Prior to assuming her current role, Yeager served as professor of natural sciences and later as chair of the NECC natural sciences department.
“Jet Setting 101” is offered as part of the NECC Speakers Bureau, which has professional speakers available to present to public and private school systems, libraries, service clubs, and more.
