Northern Essex Community College is honoring Vasil Zisi of Haverhill with its Outstanding Student Award.

Zisi was named following several nominations and approval by members of the college’s Alumni Board. In a letter of recommendation, Patricia Machado, professor of economics, lauded his academic prowess.

“He is an excellent student with an exceptional work ethic,” she wrote. “Vasil was always prepared for class, contributed valuable discussion points regarding current events in economics, and was one of the top students in the class.”

A business transfer student, Zisi began attending Northern Essex during the fall 2018 semester after migrating to the U.S. from Albania. He received the college’s merit scholarship award in the spring of 2019 and was nominated for the “29 Who Shine” award, a program that recognizes outstanding graduates from the Commonwealth’s public higher education system. In addition, Zisi is a Student of the Month award winner, a nominated member of the National Society of Leadership and Success and a member of Alpha Beta Gamma. He is graduating with high honors—and a near-perfect GPA— this spring. Besides the award, Zisi is receiving a Dell laptop computer.

Earlier this spring, he began an accounting internship at Aphios Corporation, where he continues to work.
