NECC Solicits Photos for Anniversary Mosaic
Northern Essex Community College is collecting photos, now through January 14, for a photo mosaic that’s being created in celebration of the college’s anniversary.
Alumni, current students, former and current faculty and staff, and community members are all invited to submit photos celebrating their connection to the college.
Graduation and other campus photos are welcome as well as recent photos with anniversary greetings and simple portraits.
For example, Lawrence Dentist Joseph Beninato, a longtime supporter of the college, posted a photo holding a sign celebrating his own 25 years of involvement with the college.
And business graduate Andy Bergamini submitted a photo of his Northern Essex ID card from 1973.
“People are getting creative with this, and we love that,” said Allison Dolan-Wilson, the college’s vice president of institutional advancement. “Our goal is to capture thousands of photos that cover the 60-year history of the college and bring them together to create one searchable image.”
The photos will be used to create an image of the library on the Haverhill Campus that will be printed and displayed on campus and also available online. The process for submitting photos is simple, and, after a photo is submitted, an email is sent showing where the photo fits in the mosaic image.
The photo mosaic page can be found here and the link for submitting photos is at the top in a yellow box.
When photos are submitted they can also be shared on social media, using the hashtag #NECC60
This year Northern Essex Community College is celebrating three important milestones: the 60th anniversary of the college’s founding, the 50th anniversary of the Haverhill Campus opening, and the 30th anniversary of the Dimitry Building opening as the college’s first permanent building in Lawrence.
