Each year the Student Governance Council (SGC) awards a “Person of the Year” award to recognize staff members' dedication to creating a positive student experience at Ithaca College. This year the SGC has extended their “People of the Year Award” to all of Ithaca College’s facilities staff, making it the first time this award has gone to an entire department. SGC made this decision because facilities staffdo the work of keeping IC’s campus clean and safe throughout the academic year.
“We chose the facilities staff this year because we know that they are hard at work disinfecting facilities, checking student rooms for perishable goods, and so much other work that may have gone unnoticed,” said Farwa Shakeel ’20, Ithaca College student body president 19-20. “We want to thank our facilities staff and let them know that we deeply appreciate their work.”
