NICC_alumniNortheast Iowa Community College (NICC) is not the best kept secret in our region. Far from it! In fact, a trip to the hospital, mechanic, realtor or a Fortune 500 Company headquarters confirms the obvious … NICC alumni are everywhere in our communities.

If you need a blood draw, an NICC Phlebotomy graduate may have performed the task. A Paramedic graduate could be the one arriving at the scene of a car accident. Our graduates have risen to the top in many industries; they are now corporate presidents, CEOs, vice presidents and human resources directors.

Healthcare professionals, such as Paramedic graduate Andy Ney, believe that NICC graduates are the real standouts. They bring real-world training and quick thinking to their medical profession.

“I have long observed that NICC healthcare program graduates have a consistently higher level of knowledge and training than is expected. NICC competes with the schools that offer bachelor’s degrees,” Ney expressed.

The College’s graduates are a proud group who have excelled in their careers, raised families, shared their stories and encourage others to consider enrolling at the College to complete or enhance their education and training.

Scott Perkins, a 1979 Accounting Specialist graduate, is now the president and CEO of TriMark Corporation in New Hampton.

“I loved the business and accounting courses I had in high school and after those experiences, I wanted to pursue a career-based education in the accounting field. Northeast Iowa Community College, which was known as Area One Vocational-Technical School at the time, offered a two-year Accounting Specialist program and it was everything I was looking for. My education at NICC allowed me to ‘hit the floor running’ with my accounting education. I was hired two weeks before graduation,” Perkins recalled.
