The Ray Parker Memorial Scholarship

Join the NSCC community in continuing the inspirational legacy of Ray Parker with a charitable gift to a NSCC scholarship award established in his memory.

Ray joined NSCC in 1994 as an Academic Counselor in the Student Support and Advising Center. His passion for academic learning and commitment to serving students allowed him to positively impact the lives of countless individuals. Ray took a special interest in working with students in the Health Science programs, initiating and serving as the Pre-Med Club Advisor. Ray also invested his time and resources in support of NSCC’s Veteran students. They held a special place in his heart, as he was himself a proud Veteran.

Ray extended this same time and attention to his colleagues and friends during his nearly three decades at NSCC. He will always be remembered to those who knew him as one of the most dedicated, hardworking and caring persons to everyone around him. Ray saw good in all people, and he strived to connect with them and encourage those around him to be the best they can be.

The Ray Parker Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a NSCC student who is pursuing a certificate or degree in a Health Science/Health Professions program with the intention of pursuing further medical studies.  Donate online today, or by check payable to North Shore Community College Foundation (note Ray Parker Memorial Scholarship in the check memo line), 1 Ferncroft Rd, PO Box 3340, Danvers, MA 01923.

NSCC students, faculty, and staff must be
fully vaccinated by January 2022

All employees and any students studying or coming to campus must be fully vaccinated by January 2022.

The decision was made unanimously by the Presidents of all the state’s 15 community colleges.

“During the last eighteen months, the Massachusetts Community Colleges have prioritized the health and safety of our communities while also recognizing that many of our students have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. While a significant number of students, faculty, and staff are already vaccinated or are in the process of becoming vaccinated, the fifteen colleges are seeking to increase the health and safety of the learning and working environment in light of the ongoing public health concerns and current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),” it was noted in a joint statement.

Students who seek to register for courses that do not include any in-person component, and who do not plan to come on campus for any reason for the Spring 2022 semester, will not be required to provide documentation of vaccination.

The announcement comes amid a rise in the number of new cases of COVID-19 across the Commonwealth, the increased access and availability of vaccines, the Food & Drug Administration’s full and pending approval of available vaccines, and CDC guidance that the COVID-19 vaccine has been proven to be extremely safe and highly effective at preventing infection, severe disease, hospitalization, and death, the requirement is aimed at ensuring the safest learning and working environment possible for the more than 135,000 students served by the community colleges each year.

“The Massachusetts Community Colleges are committed to ensuring vaccination status is not a barrier to students and will continue offering a range of virtual learning opportunities and services,” Heineman said.

Welcome to the
Equality & Equity Project

 As part of our commitment to Anti-Racism, Diversity & Inclusion, the Equality & Equity Project will provide historical and present-day information about the contributions, challenges, culture, and daily lives of the many vital groups that make up our NSCC community, and the larger world.

We invite you to visit often, reflect on what you see and read, discuss it with others and, hopefully, expand your knowledge base, appreciation, and understanding of groups beyond your own.

Think About This:

Scientific racism, sometimes termed biological racism, is the pseudoscientific belief that empirical evidence exists to support or justify racism (racial discrimination), racial inferiority, or racial superiority. Published in 1851, "Diseases and Peculiarities of the Negro Race" reframed an enslaved person's efforts toward freedom as the newly-created "drapetomania," a "disease of the mind" that "induces the negro to run away from service."

If you have any questions or comments on NSCC's Equality & Equity Project, please contact us at
