New Providence Resident Retires From NJIT

Marsha Roberts, project leader for internet services in University Communications (UC) at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) retired today.  Marsha had been with the university since 2001 first working for the information resources development division, then earlier this year with UC.

“New Jersey Institute of Technology’s website has improved measurably thanks to Marsha’s tireless efforts,” said UC Executive Director Jean Llewellyn. Roberts’ contributions and efforts will affect web communications long after she leaves.”

“My association with NJIT gave me a second opportunity after the demise of the Bell System, to work with a group of talented professionals in the application of computer technology,” said Roberts. Her greatest accomplishment was laying the groundwork for the implementation of NJIT’s new website. She also gained knowledge from working with a sophisticated content management system.

Roberts’ retirement from NJIT is her second. She worked for the long lines department of AT&T from 1961-1989. Her last assignment was as a systems manager handling the software development and installation for UNIX databases in the corporate data centers. She worked in the Piscataway location. She received her bachelor’s degree from Carnegie Mellon University and her master’s degree from NJIT.

Roberts and her husband Lester W. have been residents of New Providence since 1977. The couple hope to move to Kentucky within the next year.
