Former NCC Youth Earns Doctorate Degree, Impacts Community

Dr. Shannon Stanford is a true success story. Born and raised in the Central Ward of Newark, Stanford witnessed the effects of gun violence and drugs on her community. But New Community Corporation programs helped her see people working in a positive environment, which she attributes to her educational and professional achievements. She has been a professional teacher and currently works as a behavioral specialist and a consultant. Last month she completed her doctorate in education at the University of Southern California - all at age 32.

“I and others like myself are an example of the desired outcome of the NCC founders,” Stanford said. “We are examples of the good that results from people who assume social responsibility and believe that they can create a better world.”
