  • “You not only change lives, you also save lives.”  - Shaquita Grier '17

    With the aid of our community of alumni and friends, Chestnut Hill College remains undeterred in our goal to help deserving students become successful alumni, like Shaquita Grier ’17.

    "Though working full-time and attending school full-time was hard, I was encouraged by the staff and faculty to keep going. My professors told me I could do it when I thought I couldn’t. And when I thought I couldn’t pay for school, CHC granted me a scholarship that covered the rest of my tuition.

    With the help of everyone at CHC, I began to believe in myself. They were eager to make sure that I made a success story out of myself. Today, I am proud to say that I am an employee of the Mid-Atlantic Laboratory as a Physical Science Technician for the Drug Enforcement Administration."

    Shaquita worked hard for her future and Chestnut Hill College was there to support her every step of the way. 

    “The support you give makes the future brighter for many students. You not only change lives, you also save lives.”  - Shaquita Grier '17
