“I enrolled and dropped out three times before it stuck. Graduating from Nashua Community College was not a linear process,” said Meghan, a Milford High graduate who completed her associate degree in human services in 2016,
Department chair and internship advisor, Professor Jayne Barnes, said, “Meghan was afforded the opportunity to network and build contacts in her field in both of her internships – the first being with the Nashua Public Health Department. She is a great example of how experiential learning opportunities can highlight the invaluable chances students have to forge important professional connections before they even graduate. What is also true for Meghan is that she is giving back to her community. As students have often discovered through internships, the college experience is more than just what happens in the classroom.”
Meghan started volunteering at the Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter as an intern during her time at NCC, then immediately went into a yearlong service at the soup kitchen through AmeriCorps.
