Alumni Spotlight

Chelsea Helms, AA Liberal Arts and Sciences, 2012

Chelsea Helms

 "I thoroughly enjoyed my time attending North Country Community College. There were always fun events held that brought students together, which created an inviting atmosphere. More importantly, my professors were incredible. When getting an associate's degree you are typically forced to take several classes you likely don't care to take. At NCCC, the educators are passionate about what they teach, which in turn made me passionate about subjects I normally wouldn't have otherwise enjoyed."

After she graduated from North Country Community College in December 2012, Chelsea Helms persued a Bachelor's Degree at SUNY Plattsburgh. Upon graduation in May 2015, she moved to Grand Junction, Colorado where she worked for KREX5/FOX4. Over her three years there, she worked her way up through the ranks. Chelsea began as a reporter (who shot and edited all of her own stories for air), before she was promoted to main evening anchor and executive producer. In October 2018, Chelsea was promoted within her station's parent company, Nexstar Media Group (that’s set to be the largest television broadcasting company in the nation), to evening anchor for FOX24 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Chelsea produces and solo anchors the 5:30 p.m. FOX24 broadcast and solo anchors the hour-long 9 p.m. show.
