Alumni Spotlight: National Giving Month


December is National Giving Month, and we would like to celebrate and honor our NEC alumni who dedicate their time by giving back to their communities.

Several alumni share how their time at NEC shaped their journey and ignited their passion for wanting to make a difference in the world.
