On October 22nd, New England Tech kicked off its 2014 Employee Campaign, the first event commemorating the college’s 75th Anniversary. NEIT President Richard Gouse addressed faculty and staff sharing his vision for the future of the college. He explained how the college has reached a pivotal point in its evolution from its early beginnings in 1940 with the construction of its first 400-bed residence hall on the East Greenwich campus.
In honor of New England Tech’s 75th Anniversary, a goal was set to achieve 75% employee participation in the Campaign. It was truly an aggressive goal. However, with the passion, persistence, and excitement of the Campaign Captains and the generosity of faculty and staff, the 75% participation goal was achieved! The Campaign raised nearly $39,000 to support scholarships, the Building Fund, and a variety of specific technology programs.
In the words of Henry Ford, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” Recognition must go to those individuals responsible for making the Campaign such a great a success, the Campaign Team Captains: Cheryl Booker, Sherry Clukey, Tim Culhane, Kathy DaSilva, Melissa Hague, Anna Kelly, Bob Kennedy, Cheryl MacDonald, Mike Markarian, Anna Martinelli, Bill Menard, Rebecca Renaud, Carole Stiles, Susan Warthman, and Pam Wilkinson. They came together as Campaign Captains, stayed together, and worked together to achieve success.
