On April 8, members of the Northampton Community College (NCC) student group Brother2BrotherSister2Sister took on the role of big brothers and sisters when they visited the Children's Home of Easton. They were there to talk to the children about what it takes to succeed as college students and shared stories of their own successes and struggles.
"The group is very interested in community service and many of them are from Easton," Matthew Bartholomew, NCC counselor and advisor to the group, said. "It was a wonderful community partnership and amazing to see our students interact with the children and encourage them to attend college."
