Edward J. Sheehan Memorial Scholarship
The Edward J. Sheehan Memorial Scholarship was created to honor the memory of Edward J. Sheehan by one of his childhood friends. Edward J. Sheehan graduated from NECC and served as Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds from 1984 until his retirement in 2003. At the college’s 2005 commencement exercises, Edward Sheehan was posthumously awarded emeritus status, an honor that recognizes sustained excellence in performance, character and meritorious service to the college. This award is a transfer scholarship that was created to support students who are graduating from NECC with the plan to continue their education at a four year institution in the upcoming fall semester. The student must have a 2.5 GPA or higher and be receiving an Associate’s Degree at NECC. Students must submit two letters of recommendation from NECC faculty or staff and write a brief essay describing any financial need.
