On February 12, NECC Founder and CEO, Vincent Strully, Jr. was featured in the Boston Globe’s Letters to the Editor section.

In his letter, Strully lauded Governor Charlie Baker and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for enabling congregate-care facilities to receive the COVID-19 vaccine quickly. This allowed facilities like NECC, and other MAAPS schools, to safely continue to work with students. He also stressed the urgency of vaccinating teachers to prompt a return to in-person education.
