Welcome to your Heritage Garden. Celebrate your NHCC heritage by engraving a paver or naming a special feature in the NHCC Heritage Garden.
Nestled below the Carillon (bell tower), the Heritage Garden commemorates:
Students who dedicate themselves to self-discovery and acquiring knowledge
Alumni who took their NHCC education and are making their mark in the world
Faculty and staff (current and former) who create an exceptional learning experience
Donors who strengthen the community with an educated workforce
Local communities, businesses, organizations, and community members with dedication to higher education
Family members of students, faculty and staff whose support also changes lives.
By celebrating those who impacted your life, your donation will make quality higher education accessible and pave the way for future students.

For consistency and uniformity of the Heritage Garden, only a single font style will be used.
We ask that these phrases not be used as they can denote loss and sadness. The overall theme of the Heritage Garden is to recognize, celebrate and give thanks to those who made a positive impact on your life.

As you are beautifying our campus and receiving nothing in exchange, this is considered a tax-deductible donation. Consult with your tax adviser for your specific situation.
Your donation to the Heritage Garden not only beautifies the campus, it also provides educational opportunities to NHCC students through scholarships, emergency aid, and academic program support. It also helps fund the NHCC Alumni Relations program.
