Cultivating Diversity in the Classroom and the Workplace
The NCCC Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee was created in September 2016. It serves as an initiative to actively engage the whole college community in recognizing the importance of diversity for assuring the success of all members of our college community, including students, staff, faculty, and administration, in an ever-increasingly global environment.

Black History Month
This month NCCC recognizes and celebrates Black History Month with the help of the Association for the Study of African-American Life and History (ASALH). Their chosen theme for the 2023 BHM is Black Resistance! African Americans have resisted historic and ongoing oppression, in all forms, especially the racial terrorism of lynching, racial pogroms, and police killings since our arrival upon these shores. These efforts have been to advocate for a dignified self-determined life in a just democratic society in the United States and beyond the United States political jurisdiction.

He owns and operates Limitless Fitness Club, a traveling gym that he founded during the COVID-19 pandemic. This business offers online training, nutrition, and wellness coaching for clients. Outside of the Limitless Fitness Club, Antonio volunteers his time operating turkey drives every November.

As a student at NCCC, Antonio was the treasurer for The Culture Club and explored different cultures and cuisines each week with friends. Antonio notes, “My time at NCCC has given me a great experience for diversity in multiple cultures. The experience I had has shown me that NCCC honors diversity within the students as well as within the staff.”
