Message from the Chair

Northeast State Foundation chair It is my pleasure to serve as chair of the Northeast State Community College Foundation. I cannot think of anything more rewarding than to remove barriers so students can achieve their dreams.

Since 1986, the Foundation has assisted thousands of students with scholarships, emergency stipends, and technology. These funds are critical, and often why a student stays enrolled and on track to graduation.

We are appreciative and honored when gifts are made to ensure the success of Northeast State students. Please consider the Foundation in your giving plan(s), so we can continue to build and sustain a vital, well-trained workforce for the region. Together as partners, we can make a difference in Northeast State students' lives for generations to come.


Lottie Ryans,

Northeast State Foundation Chair, 2020-2021
