At the Blackburn Education Building, Tony works tirelessly on updating the building inside and out. If it is necessary to conduct his work when the campus is quiet, he has no qualms about coming in on the weekends to complete those tasks.

In addition to his many maintenance duties, Tony embraces custodial tasks with equal vigor and aplomb. He is always ready and willing to assist when asked about any assignment. For example, when our nursing assistant needed help setting up her room for more efficient use, Tony jumped on the opportunity to help.

Tony never loses his pleasant disposition, whether during hours spent pressure washing the building and removing the pesky mud daubers from the walls and roof, stripping and waxing the floors, or meticulously cleaning all the light fixtures throughout the building. No task is too low for his thorough care, not even the restroom cleaning duty.

Tony demonstrates an attitude of dedication and service that was instilled in him during his time in the military. He is a veteran with wartime service in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Tony does more than just tick off the tasks on work orders—taking the initiative to change burned-out lightbulbs when he sees them. When repainting the seats around campus, he takes the extra steps to prep and prime them first.

Tony’s commitment to these high standards ensure IRSC facilities are safe, welcoming, and comfortable for staff, faculty, students, and visitors.
