"NSCC made me what I am today; it has become my family, one that I truly love."
LESLEY PETERS, a long-time member of the NSCC Alumni Board, is the elected alumni representative on the North Shore Community College Board of Trustees. Lesley, accounting supervisor at the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority, graduated from NSCC in 1997 with high honors. A business transfer student, she continued her education at Suffolk University where she earned a B.S.B.A. in finance and graduated summa cum laude.
Lesley, originally from Britain, came to NSCC in 1994 "with no clue about what I wanted to do or what I was good at, if anything. I did realize that education was going to be the key to leading a full and productive life. Fate stepped in that first day as my first two classes were with professors that changed my life forever. Somehow, Madelyn Logan and Richard Ponticelli made their classes enthralling and the appetite for knowledge soon grew. I could not learn enough".
"One of the reasons why I continue to stay connected to NSCC is that I want to say thank you for giving me a voice, for all the help, support and encouragement I received over the years. NSCC made me what I am today; it has become my family, one that I truly love."
"I am proud to serve as the alumni trustee as I look at it as my way of saying thank you and giving back. I want to make sure that students and alumni have a voice in college decisions. I came to the college when I changed careers and feel like I grew up here. I was an older student, but was made to feel welcomed. I have a deep connection to NSCC that is never going to go away."
