Bear Hug Committee

This is a joint sub-committee of the Faculty and Staff senates. It is a community care type of committee that will acknowledge the life events of current and former employees of Northeast State Community College.

To do this, we need your help! Please email us at bearhug@northeaststate.edu if you know of a member of the Northeast State community who needs a Bear Hug!

It can be a caring hug because they or a family member is sick or has passed away (pets are family members too!) or a happy hug because they have a new addition such as a new baby or grandbaby or they finished that degree they have been working on. Anything of note that you think they would appreciate a card from the Bear Hug committee is requested.
