Veterans have long been part of the North Bennet Street School's history, and today over 20% of the full-time student body includes those who have served. NBSS is committed to educating veterans, and the newly launched Yellow Ribbon Program can help support their worthwhile goals.
Every year, Oneida Air Systems awards a $1,000 each to a student from North Bennet Street School, Oregon College of Art and Craft, and Rochester Institute of Technology. We are proud to announce that this year's NBSS recipient is Cabinet & Furniture Making student Kelly Harris CF '17.
Growing up, Emily Ostroff PC '16 had a neighbor who attended NBSS something that had caught her attention from an early age. "When I was trying to figure out what to do next, I knew I wanted to work in a field where I was active," she said. Emily's passion for preserving historic buildings and gigs with Habitat for Humanity and in state parks led her to the Preservation Carpentry program at NBSS.
Bookbinding student Sarah Kim BB '18 recently started classes at NBSS this past fall. Moving here from Syracuse, NY took some adjusting, but she's loving her new home and all that Boston has to offer. Here Sarah shares a typical day in her life, from morning commute and bench work to a few of her favorite things.
If the Sherborn-based Sequoia Custom Builders, Inc. is any indication, the North Bennet Street School tradition of alumni hiring students as interns and employees is alive and well. The current team at Sequoia is comprised of five Carpentry alumni employed full-time as carpenters and assistant carpenters.
