“I experienced life and realized – you need an education,” he said.
Cam Morin is a natural leader, he likes to be involved, he strives to make a difference, and he approaches everything he does in life with intentions of emerging a better person. He has high hopes for the future and is a firm believer that you get what you put in.
Morin’s NCC adventure is unique in that he was a student here twice. He first enrolled after graduating from high school in 2007. He was different then, he didn’t enjoy school and had trouble putting forth the effort needed to succeed. He left NCC and took on various miscellaneous jobs, but he quickly learned that the real world wasn’t as kind, forgiving, or easy as he thought it might be.
In the fall of 2014, Morin was ready for a change, he was ready for NCC. He wanted to be a role model, change the future, and be the leader he knew he could be. He has done just that.
Morin enrolled in the Educator Preparation program and plans to continue on to complete a bachelor’s degree. He has already been accepted to two of his chosen four schools. In addition to his achievements in the classroom, he demonstrated leadership and service at NCC as president of Phi Theta Kappa and secretary of the Student Senate.
In his personal life, Morin is involved in a community theater group, is actively learning French, and is a Montreal Canadiens hockey fan. He wants to be a teacher so that he can “do something that matters,” and plans to one day earn a PhD. He credits NCC with giving him a pathway back into academics.
Morin’s comeback story could be yours and he hopes it will be. His advice?
“We’re all in this together,” he said. “Make the best with what you’ve got, you’re always good enough.”
