Early College Student Appointed to Lawrence Board
Northern Essex Community College Early College student Joseph Trinidad, a senior at Lawrence High School, was recently appointed to the Lawrence Alliance on Education (LAE).
The LAE is a non-profit seven-member board tasked with overseeing the Lawrence Public Schools. The Lawrence Superintendent reports to the LAE and the LAE reports to the Massachusetts commissioner of elementary and secondary education.
Trinidad, a Lawrence resident, who was selected by a subcommittee of the LAE, hopes to one day attend medical school. He is currently enrolled in the Early College program, which allows area high school students the opportunity to enroll in classes and earn college credits while still in high school. He holds a 3.8 GPA, has earned 26 college credits and is on track to earn seven more credits this spring.
Also serving on the LAE board is Dr. Noemi Custodia-Lora, vice president of NECC’s Lawrence Campus.
