About Curtis Lemar Haigh

There are Communication Studies majors who impress through their academic achievements. There are, however, also students who inspire us with their ability to overcome adversity. We are especially touched by those who, despite physical limitations, use everything else they have to become the best at what they do.

Curtis Lemar Haigh was a Communication Studies major who died in 1985. He is remembered as a courageous student who, despite daunting physical challenges, made tangible contributions to the Communication Studies Department and to Northeastern University.

Someone with less character might have been daunted by the obstacles that Curtis confronted on a daily basis. Rather than growing angry or discouraged, Curtis responded with perseverance and good cheer. This was most evident in his steadfast devotion to WRBB, the campus radio station.

Curtis was a friend, teacher, and role model to all who knew him. Although he passed away thirty years ago, Curtis’ spirit and memory lives on through the scholarship that bests his name.
