NORTH CALDWELL, NJ - West Essex Middle School students learned about “Smartphone Safety” and how to be safe online at a special program at the school on Dec. 5. Thirteen Automatic Data Processing (ADP) employees spent a few hours meeting with different classes and educating students, said Olga Digina, a project specialist at ADP who is from Livingston. 

"You need to be careful what you post...When you post online, it stays there" Digina said. "Students need to learn to protect themselves."

West Essex Regional Schools Superintendent Barbara Longo welcomed the ADP volunteers to West Essex. Present for the occasion from ADP were: Tech & App Management Specialist Pat Freda from Fairfield, Director of Project and Program Management Enterprise Applications David J. Christensen from Wharton, MAS Rachel Onufrak from Dover, IT Service Manager Joe Murano Sr. from Roseland, Director of Application Development Rich J. Preziotti Sr. from West Caldwell, Sr. Director of Human Resources Lisa Loprete-Duthie, from Roseland, Security Project Manager Tom Meyer from Summit, Global View Vice President and General Manager Stuart Sackman Sr. of East Brunswick, Program Manager Bill Bonstein, from Chester, IT Fraud Business Analyst Angel Pagan, from South Plainfield, Security Program Manager Victoria Ruiz, from Rockaway and BES - Project Manager Joseph J Finazzo, of Chatham.

"It was a great experience talking with the kids. We got a lot out of it," Digina said.
