The College’s Human Resources Department, under the direction of Executive Director Shunda Williams, hosted the 25th annual Employees Recognition Ceremony on Thursday, December 14, 2023. The ceremony was held in the 4th Floor Multipurpose Room.

Employees were recognized for milestones in increments of five years, starting with 5 years of service through 55 years, when the College opened its doors.

Earning special recognition were Professors A. Patricia Bartinique (Humanities), Gerald Freedman (Social Sciences) and Dr. Robert Spellman (Humanities) for their 55 years of service to the College and students. A total of 54 employees were honored at the ceremony, which was attended by ECC’s President, Dr. Augustine A. Boakye, and Trustees Isabel Cruz and Johanna Wright.

“On behalf of Trustees Cruz and Wright, and the entire Essex County College family, we salute these employees for their time, dedication and service to our institution and its mission. Thank you,” said Dr. Boakye.
