NECC Takes Gold for Website

Northern Essex Community College’s marketing communications department received a gold Medallion Award for its recently redesigned website from the prestigious National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR) for District 1.

The NCMPR Medallion Awards recognize outstanding achievement in design and communication at community and technical colleges in each of NCMPR’s seven districts. The regional competition is exclusive to marketing and public relations professionals at two-year colleges.

District 1 includes schools from Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Quebec, and United Kingdom.

The redesign was led by Nathan Gilbert, NECC’s director of online communications.

“We are proud of this work,” said Ron Taber, NECC Chief Marketing Officer. “It was a true team effort. Our intent was to create a user-friendly website that was both easy to navigate and visually appealing. I think the marketing communications team achieved those goals.”
