“We truly do have some outstanding students here at Northeast,” said Amanda Nipp, vice president of student services. “Year-after-year, I watch our students excel and do exceptional work. Many of them win national honors because of their skills and abilities. We are very proud of their endeavors and the way they represent all of us at Northeast.”
Dr. Leah Barrett, president, congratulated the students for jobs well done and for making the most of their college experience. She told honorees in addition to making the decision to seek a college degree, they made the choice to invest their time and talent in co-curricular activities - activities that are championed by Northeast employees.
“This is the most fabulous place I have ever worked; and it’s because of the wonderful advisors, faculty, staff and coaches that work so hard with all of you. I want all of the students here to turn around and give them a round of applause.”
