By: Tad Stephanak

A recent Burlington graduate has been honored by a national organization of educators. 


The National Coalition for Educational and Cultural Programs Inc. (NCECP) has granted Burlington High School graduate Bridget Conceison their annual Future Teacher Award. The NCECP Future Teacher Award is presented to a student pursuing a career in education. Conceison is attending Framingham State University this fall and is majoring in Early Childhood Education.


“I was honored to receive this award because teaching means so much to me. I have always wanted to be a teacher to impact the lives of my students, and to learn from my students,” she said.


The NCECP is dedicated to improving the quality of care for children and seeks to offer affordable, quality programs focused on early childhood topics for daycare providers, educators and families, a release explains.


Conceison said she looks forward to upholding the ideals of the NCECP.


“After college I plan on teaching kindergarten because I love working with kids,” she said. “This scholarship was such an honor and meant so much to me.”


The NCECP is a volunteer 501c3 nonprofit educational organization that aims to benefit children by supporting teachers and families and enjoys the support of the Salem Five Bank Foundation. The NCECP also remains the second agency in the state to be approved by the Department of Early Education and Care as an early childhood Continuing Education Unit (CEU) authorizing agency.
