NMC’s Student Support Services Program Hires Counselor (March 24, 2010)

The Northern Marianas College has recently hired a new counselor for its Student Support Services (SSS) Program.

Neda B. Camacho, a professional who has been in the field of law enforcement and social work for roughly four years, will be tasked with guiding program participants with their individual academic goals and assisting to ensure their success in college through various workshops and presentations.

Camacho holds an Associate of Science degree in Criminal Justice and a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Administration of Justice from Portland State University. She was the former executive director of Connecting Families, Inc., a non-profit organization in the CNMI that facilitates supervised visitations and safe exchanges for families involved with domestic violence, sexual abuse, stalking, or dating violence. She was also a former Probation Officer and Program Manager for the Victim Assistance in Probation Program (VAPP) in the CNMI.

Camacho will be providing personal and group-based counseling to students who are aiming to attain a liberal arts degree, who are still undecided with their intended major, and who will be transferring credits to a four-year university. She will also be responsible for helping increase self-understanding and develop independence during first years in college.

“I am delighted to welcome Neda to the NMC community,” said NMC Interim President Lorraine T. Cabrera. “I am also extremely confident in the knowledge and talent she will share with student participants of the Student Support Services program.”

The Student Support Services program is a federally-funded program that assists college students with their basic requirements. SSS provides a number of services that includes personal and career counseling, academic advising, social enrichment events, and educational workshops.
