NECC Tech Day Honors Late Faculty Member

Submitted by on April 7, 2014 – 1:57 pm

A Technology Day to honor longtime Northern Essex Community College computer science faculty member Kathy Proietti, who passed away in January, will be held on Wednesday, April 9, with events scheduled at both 420 Common St. in Lawrence and 100 Elliott St. in Haverhill. This event is open to the public.

“Everyone can think of a conversation they had with Kathy… her presence was always real, insightful, warm and unbelievably funny,” says NECC professor Nancy Nickerson, who was a colleague and personal friend of Proietti’s. “Kathy empowered others, investing in their efforts and personal challenges.”

From 9 a.m. to noon, the new computer labs at 420 Common St. will be open with demonstrations by faculty and students.

From 5 to 8 p.m. in the Hartleb Technology Center on the Haverhill campus, guest speaker Ahmed Hafeez, a computer security specialist and director of software development at Bottomline Technology in Portsmouth, NH, will discuss the importance and evolution of computer security.

To register for this event, it is recommended you email Computer Science Professor Ethel Schuster at
