Custodian Silvia Nuno and Senior Administrative Assistant Nikki Puliyanda pitch in on Campus Beautification Day
On Thursday, August 15, IVC facilities staff, including their managers, spent the morning going above and beyond their duties to beautify the campus in advance of the fall semester.
IVC President Glenn Roquemore honored the facilities crew for their efforts at the Classified Senate breakfast meeting, held during Professional Development Week.
“I usually like to get here early and take a quiet walk around the campus,” President Roquemore told the assembled staff members. “What I see when I walk this campus is art. And I’m not talking about the artwork that we have on campus; I’m talking about the care, the passion, that goes into manicuring this campus in a way that is absolutely inviting to our students; to the public; to the community that comes here.
“When I walk inside our classrooms, it’s the same thing; you’ll hardly find a scuff mark. You’ll find floors that are absolutely shining and inviting. Well-painted buildings. All of these things are incredibly important to our students.”
President Roquemore also honored Lead Building Maintenance Worker Benjamin Smith at the meeting for winning the President’s Executive Council award.
