Heather Anderson graduated from Nashua Community College with an Associate of Arts in Teacher Education in 2009. As a student she was actively involved in Student Senate, the Drama Club, and the Student Peace Alliance.
“Because of NCC I learned the importance of acquiring an education, being involved in student activities, and how to be a leader amongst my peers,” she said.
After completing her degree at NCC, Anderson continued to set the bar high for herself. She went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from the University of New Hampshire, followed by a master’s degree from Southern New Hampshire University.
Now the Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admission at Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Fla. and an adjunct faculty member at New England College, Anderson does not forget her community college roots or those who pushed her to pursue her dreams early on.
“NCC helped me learn how to be a leader and a strong, confident woman,” Anderson said. “I credit so much of my career and educational success to NCC and the professors and staff who served as inspiring role models.”
Anderson’s gratitude and positive attitude are visible— and to her NCC is the real deal.
“Attending NCC was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, it’s more than just your average community college” she said. “You benefit from the rich relationships you develop within the college community itself.”
Anderson is proud to be an alum, and we are proud to have her as one.
