Beautiful landscaping and grounds on campus Wows the Prez!

ICC Interim President Dr. William Tammone recently received the following email from Professor Brent Goken (Arts and Communication):

Dr. Tammone,

I don’t know if others have noticed, but our landscaping and grounds at the ICC East Peoria Campus are absolutely stunning! The perennial gardens are filled with lush foliage, bountiful blooms, and finely edged green space. While I’ve always treasured the beauty of our campuses, I have really taken notice this summer of the countless hours and dedication by our Facility Services and Grounds Crew staff to ensure our properties are maintained in a way that is both aesthetically pleasing and attractive to the communities in which we serve. We are blessed to have such magnificent and well maintained facilities, and it’s important to commend and celebrate the hard work and diligence of our staff who make it possible.

I would encourage faculty, staff, and administrators alike to take a walk sometime through our campuses this summer. The grounds are works of art, and meant to be enjoyed by all.

Kudos to Facility Services, Vice President of Administration and Finance Bruce Budde, and our grounds crew and leadership, including: Supervisor Tom Braun, Shawn Goldring, Tom Davis, Craig Accurso, Kenny Rutherford, Dennis Bisping, Les Hibberd, Destiny Landry, Ross Neaville, Jemia Carpenter, Steve Leverton, Jerry Twedell, Cory Cooper, Jacob Sleva, Lenard Smith, Bob Wernsman, Eric Bulak, Karlee Lairson, and Chris Williams.
