NE Systems is proud to accept the 2015 College of the Canyons Outstanding Friend Award. Formed in 2003 by Neal Rydall and Ed Padilla, NE System’s strong relationship with College of the Canyons has been important throughout the years. The company especially thanks Chancellor Dr. Dianne van Hook, Assistant Superintendent Dr. Barry Gribbons and Dr. James Temple, Associate V.P. of Information Technology Services for their support.
Ed Padilla believes that education is immensely important, and he serves on committee to help shape COC's IT curriculum, bringing his knowledge of the IT sector to help create a workforce with relevant skills needed in the industry.
In support of the college, NE Systems regularly donates funds and equipment and has established the NE Systems Single Parent Scholarship for COC students. Single Parent education is an important issue to Padilla, whose mother did not have the chance to pursue an education. Other causes that NE Systems supports includes PaRC, (The Parenting and Relationship Counseling Foundation) and the Salvation Army toy drive.
With over 20 years of combined experience in IT and computer networking technology, NE Systems understands the increasing demands on IT managers, especially in government, education and healthcare, to bring a project home under a tight budget, while also meeting expectations of strict online security and privacy. They have a proven track record of successfully working with educational institutions, healthcare providers, government organizations, and businesses throughout Southern California.
