Annual Celebration and Award Presentation

The North Shore Community College Foundation honors exceptional leaders who are dedicated to excellence in higher education and career pathways for residents of the North Shore and beyond with the annual presentation of the NSCC Champions Awards for philanthropy and volunteerism, community impact, and public service and advocacy.  

2021 Champions Honorees

The Fifth Annual Champions for North Shore Community College Celebration was held virtually on Thursday, November 4th, featuring the presentation of the NSCC Champions Awards to Anh Dao Tran-Moseman, in recognition of philanthropy and volunteerism; Essex County Community Foundation, in recognition of community impact; and Senator Joan B. Lovely, in recognition of public service and advocacy.  Their common vision is that higher education is an essential pathway of promise, opportunity, and a new beginning.  Through the gifts of their time, talents and treasure, they are making sure this pathway remains strong and accessible to each and every resident in our community.  Presenting sponsors Eastern Bank, Comcast, and The Loring Family generously partnered in presenting the 2021 awards to our distinguished honorees.
