In the Making: Inside Our Community

December 15, 2021


Alumni, In the Making

“Coming back to NBSS, I’ve realized the tradition of excellence. As a student, I fell in love with construction and locksmithing, and now, I have an opportunity to be an instructor, and give back. Whatever you learn here, you can succeed with it.”
– Eddy Dacius LK ’13

On Tuesday, December 14, 2021, we were delighted and inspired to hear from a cross-section of our community: alumni, faculty, staff, and Board members. They shared anecdotes, memories, and personal stories of what they love about NBSS.

They each related how they came to be part of our community, including showing off an object that tells a story about their background and what North Bennet means to them.

Our guests included:

  • Sarah Turner, President
  • Marc Marguiles, Board Chair
  • Eddy Dacius LK ’13, Locksmithing & Security Technology Department Head, Instructor, and graduate
  • Peter Smith PC ’04, Carpentry Department Head and Instructor, and graduate of Preservation Carpentry
  • Kailey Maraglia JM ’21, Receptionist and Jewelry Making & Repair graduate
  • Jennifer Chen PT ’20, PA ’21, Piano Technology graduate
  • Eli Cleveland CF ’09, Continuing Education Instructor and Cabinet & Furniture Making graduate
