North Georgia Technical College recently recognized employees at the college’s annual service awards holiday luncheon.

NGTC officials said audio-visual/information technology specialist Brandon Provitera was named the 2024 Employee of the Year.

NGTC has employed Provitera since 2014 where he has worked as a technical support specialist, a library assistant and a library work-study. He graduated from NGTC in 2016 with a networking specialist associate degree. 

Provitera was nominated by staff members and was complimented on his friendliness, knowledge and willingness to go above and beyond for the college.

“It means a lot to me to be recognized as Employee of the Year,” Provitera said. “I really appreciate everyone at the college and in my department fostering such a great work environment. Without them and their encouragement, I would not have risen to the heights I am today. It’s a blessing; thank you once again.”

NGTC Information Technology Director Savonda Turner said it is a pleasure to work with Provitera. 

“Brandon stands out for his exemplary customer service, outstanding work ethic, and dedication to the college,” Turner said. “He embodies a consistently positive attitude that has significantly contributed to the spirit of our IT team and is an exceptional example of excellence among NGTC employees. It is a pleasure to work alongside someone of Brandon’s caliber.”

NGTC President John Wilkinson also presented the 2024 Employee Service Awards, which recognizes employees for years of service. 

Five-year service employees included Letty Adams, Darin Boozer,  Laurie Boozer, Derek Deibler, Michelle Dockery, Adam Fulbright, Melissa Henderson, Charles Hurst, Bobby McCarter, Braxton McCarter, Brandy Sackel, Shonda Satterfield and Souvanh Touralack.

Julia Braswell was honored for 20 years of service with NGTC.

Twenty-five-year certificates were awarded to Janet Henderson, Tammy Keyes, Samantha Marchant and Dorothy Mayfield.
