B.S. Behavioral Science, 2013
Michael Lacerte is an Instructional Technology and Data Specialist at Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School in Haverhill, MA. He is thrilled to be part of the GSC Alumni Association Board, and passionate about the mission of the College and having the opportunity to serve as a GSC ambassador.
In addition to his current IT work in a major public school district, Michael's experience includes managing sales for a major corporation and working in the office of a small business. He believes his age is an asset to the Board and will help to prove to others in the millennial generation that they should consider pursuing a college degree, as it has allowed him to experience success that he would not otherwise have obtained.
Says Michael, “The biggest goal I have is to show that anyone, regardless of his/her situation, can receive a quality and useful education at GSC. As someone who had to leave college several times to take care of my late mother, I believe I am representative of a non-traditional student, even though my age bracket says otherwise. I would like alumni to have a way to communicate more freely with each other. Creating a database or a message board for alumni to keep in touch, network, or generally communicate would be a great tool, both for the College and the alumni.”
Michael’s primary hobbies include making music, weightlifting, and spending time with his wife Allie and their two “kids,” cats Miles and Sadie. He also enjoys staying up to date with all technology, and implementing it into both his life and career.
