NCC Student Awarded Scholarship to Mount Holyoke College

NCC student Ren Citak was just accepted as a Frances Perkins scholar at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Mass. This is a full-scholarship offer to study at one of the country’s best colleges.  Three other brilliant NCC graduates–Sheena Stapleton, Teri Lombardi, and Jessica Santini–will graduate from Mount Holyoke in May!  (And our own Ketty Munyenyembe is graduating from Smith, with a phenomenal offer for a Ph.D at Yale!). The Frances Perkins scholarship is worth more than $55,000 each year.

Our students have earned over a million dollars worth of scholarships over the last six or seven years. According to Ren, if she didn’t attend our NCC information session in early November, she wouldn’t have even applied to Mount Holyoke or known about the awesome Frances Perkins Program for non-traditional college female students. We are #NCCproud!
