Northern Essex Eyes Downtown Haverhill Expansion

Student Center at Northern Essex Community College’s Haverhill campus.

Northern Essex Community College could expand in downtown Haverhill if it finds support for a proposed hospitality program.

College trustees received a report last month, discussing the possibility of partnering with Endicott College at an as-yet undisclosed location.

“Northern Essex is currently exploring the possibility of offering a hospitality and culinary arts program in downtown Haverhill,” Ernie Greenslade, college director of public relations, told WHAV this week. “The college is meeting with potential education partners, along with reviewing costs and potential sources of funding. If it makes sound financial sense, the college would welcome the opportunity to contribute to the revitalization of downtown Haverhill.”

In a report to trustees, college President Lane A. Glenn said, “The college is now looking for state support, and for potential donors…The soonest the program would be offered is the fall of 2017.”

If the plan progresses, Northern Essex Community College would join UMass Lowell in welcoming students to downtown Haverhill. UMass Lowell is planning to occupy two floors of Harbor Place, currently under construction at White’s Corner. The last time Northern Essex had a formal presence in downtown Haverhill was during the 1960s when it occupied the former Haverhill High School, now city hall, before its Haverhill campus was constructed.

Endicott College, of Beverly, operates a School of Hospitality Management. The program provides students with three internship experiences along with classroom learning. Northern Essex also offers programs in hospitality as part of its business program.

    • Rich, that would be cool but we need to clear it with ass-hat jack Haverhill. We need to make sure because you know he really hates all the other races but his. So we need to make sure that all those fine folks that are deemed ‘not acceptable’ to ass-hat jack are not using the facilities or at the least a wall is created to keep them out of the dining hall.

  1. As a state funded college, NECC would be tax exempt from any property it leases downtown. That then shifts the tax burden to Haverhill property owners.
    put into a browser with www. in front of it.

    More than likely most people who are reading this post are unaware what Lane Glenn has been up to at the NECC campus in Lawrence. He recently took a trip to the Dominican Republic with Lawrence mayor Daniel Rivera. The purpose of that trip was to partner with Dominican Republic community colleges to make it easy for “citizens of the DR” to easily transfer credits to the Lawrence NECC campus when they take courses there. Lane Glenn and NECC then hosted Dominican leaders to sell their program here. The link is above.

    Here is a state employee going to a foreign country to develop and facilitate a program where illegal criminal trespassers can utilize the Massachusetts educational system. Although the trip was not paid for with public funds or through NECC, it doesn’t matter. The fact that a state college, funded by Massachusetts taxpayers, is facilitating providing educational benefits to citizens of other countries is disgusting. Not to mention how insane it is that this program leads to ultimate conclusion of these illegal criminal trespassers then taking the jobs of Americans. Read the article…the leaders from the DR state that their goal is to increase Latinos filling professional positions IN AMERICA not because they are the most qualified, but simply because they are Latino.

    If you read the link…don’t be fooled by the language. They refer to the opportunities of “immigrants”. This is liberal code for illegal trespassing citizens from other countries!!! If they were sincere in their efforts they would be referring to these criminal trespassers as “American citizens with Dominican heritage”.

    Once again, Massachusetts residents and tax payers are getting conned by out of control liberalism in this state.

    • Thank you again for another fart nugget of wisdom from our not-so-friendly neighborhood Ass-hat know-it-all

      In this episode of You Don’t Know Jack! , Jack is up to his same mold tricks (yes mold, not old) in this episode. No kids, this is not a rerun ! But it is really the same stuff that Jack pops out of that big hairy zit he thinks is his brain.
