Farewell from Linda

Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

I just wanted to take a moment to let you all know I will be moving on from the Danvers cafeteria to a new venture with Corporate Chefs. My last day will be Monday, September 16.

It has been a pleasure serving everyone at NSCC for the past ten years – I’ve enjoyed it very much.

Sincere thanks for your support - I will miss you ALL.
