NECC employees honored for service

Recommended for awards by supervisors, co-workers

They help make NECC tick, and their co-workers notice their efforts.

Northern Essex Community College employees Donna Felisberto of Newton, N.H., Bob West of Manchester, N.H., and Andrea Bailey of Amesbury have received the NECC Employee Recognition Award for the first quarter of 2014.

The award recognizes the many and varied contributions of the college’s nearly 700 employees. Employees are selected each quarter based on recommendations from supervisors and co-workers. Recipients receive a $150 certificate to the restaurant or mall of their choice.

Felisberto, a 27-year veteran of Northern Essex, is coordinator of student assessment and testing in the academic placement and testing center. She was nominated by colleague Donna Bertolino. Felisberto holds an Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts and an Associate of Science in Paralegal Studies from NECC, a Bachelor of Science in Business Studies: Computer Information Systems from Southern New Hampshire University, and a Master’s in Education from Cambridge College.

For nearly five years, West has worked as a laboratory technician and safety officer. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Science from Merrimack College. West was nominated by Natural Sciences Professor Marcy Yeager and his nomination was supported by Professor Kevin Mitchell.

Bailey, a two-year employee of NECC, works as a disability services specialist in the Learning Accommodations Center and professor in a College Success Seminar. She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology and Business and a Master of Education in Moderate Special Needs from Cambridge College. Bailey was nominated by co-workers Susan Martin, Deborah Regan and Sue Cunningham.
