As we move into a study week before finals, I don't think words can express the gratitude I feel for having been given this truly unique and rewarding scholarship at the American College of History and Legal Studies.

The entire staff is above all expectations.  Dean Chesson instills the importance of checking resources and using critical thinking techniques by taking you from the settlement of this country to the current day; dispelling many myths along the way, through a vast array of historical topics on American and World History and how they reflect and/or have affected one another. The guest speakers have all been inspiring and informative. This is complemented by Professor Defusco-Sullivan's ability to teach English and various forms of writing, by providing conscience moving literature that runs the gamut and think on your feet exercises that prepare you for ... well, seriously any topic under the sun.

If you have ever wanted an opportunity you thought would never be within your reach, the direction of this college under Dean Mooney and the course's here are outstanding.  Whether you’re pursuing a bachelor's or Juris Doctor (in 3 years not 4), you will find ACHLS, as a team, is able to bring a diverse group of individuals together, where you can share, discuss, debate and disagree with respect and consideration for all view points, while creating new perspectives and enduring possibilities.

"Accept the challenges so that you may feel the exhilaration of victory." General George S. Patton (American General World War I & II 1885-1945)

Denise-Marie Cutter/McIntosh, a 2010 graduate of the Nashua Community College Paralegal Program with Academic Distinction, was awarded a full-tuition scholarship for the academic year 2011-2012 from The American College of History and Legal Studies (ACHLS), on her pathway to law school.

Denise-Marie, a Western Massachusetts native, who at a young age advocated for children’s rights in the foster care system and graduated from high school after her junior year, was also one of the first and youngest women to be asked to join the Chicopee Lions Club.  Denise is still a forceful advocate for the rights of children and families.  She is furthering her legal education with the goal to hold accountable those parties who are legally entrusted with the welfare of children and families.    

Denise has actively served as President of the NCC Paralegal Club for 2009/2010, was an active participant with the Paralegal Association of New Hampshire serving on several committees, and has worked with legislators on laws affecting the community. She is also dedicated to promoting literacy as a member of the Nashua, N.H. Summerfun committee, and organizer of the acclaimed Fairy Tale Festival, specifically designed to promote literacy for children. The Fairy Tale Festival drew a record attendance of 5500 last year, and this year’s show on July 16, 2011 is sure to be a hit. 
Denise continues to set the standard for professionals in the legal field.  Prior to graduation, she conceived and implemented a full-day continuing legal education course on the pressing issue of domestic violence.  Held in October of 2010, the course was approved by the New Hampshire Bar Association and the National Federation of Paralegal Associations for 6 credits including 1credit in ethics.  The course received a 95% approval rating from those in attendance, demonstrating that Denise’s academic success is only matched by her success outside the classroom. 

With creative social networking skills and a background in research, Denise is also a faithful steward of every task entrusted to her.  Denise has been recognized as having the perseverance, initiative and extraordinary determination to succeed in any project, objective or goal she pursues.  Her commitment to further her education in pursuing her legal career, often while working two or three jobs, is apparent, unwavering, and fervent.
