50 Years of Northeast Community College

The graduating class of 2023 marks the 50th class to graduate from Northeast Community College. For five decades, Northeast has been dedicated to the success of our students and the region we serve by providing exceptional educational opportunities that arm students with the skills for success and by evolving to meet the changing needs of our workforce.

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, we reflect on the many achievements and milestones that have made our college what it is today. We have an outstanding record of success, with a high job placement rate, a reputation for embracing new technology and innovation, and a history of working closely with partners across the region to drive progress.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we are planning a series of events and activities that will showcase our college's rich history and promising future. These will be opportunities for our community to come together and celebrate our shared success. We invite you to join us in celebrating this important milestone and to be a part of our continuing legacy of excellence. Thank you for being part of the success of Northeast Community College.
