Derry resident receives NECC employee award

Joshua Bordis of Derry was one of three Northern Essex Community College employees who recently received the quarterly employee recognition award for the first quarter of 2012.

The Employee Recognition 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 his or her choice.

Bordis is the technical operations coordinator for NECC's enrollment services. He came to Northern Essex in 2009 as a financial aid counselor. He holds a bachelor's degree in philosophy and political Science from Boston University.

He was nominated by the entire enrollment services team. They praised him for his "enthusiasm, great sense of humor, and ability to motivate".

The nomination continues.

"Joshua is extremely efficient and performs above and beyond expectations. His commitment has had a very positive effect on his colleagues as the team strives to meet goals and provide the best possible service for our students," it reads.

"Joshua is very professional and student oriented. He understands that our student population needs answers quickly and has never failed to respond to students, not only to answer direct questions and concerns that they may have, but to take the opportunity to educate students on the full financial aid process so that they can be best prepared while pursuing their education."

With campuses in Haverhill and Lawrence and extension sites in Methuen and Groveland, NECC is a state-assisted college, offering more than 90 associate degree and certificate programs, as well as hundreds of noncredit courses. Visit
