|John Okerman, (everyone calls him Bob) has been with the college since 1997 as Facilities Supervisor. Bob supervises the crew which deals with daily residence hall maintenance needs. Bob also oversees the summer effort to get rooms ready for fall and coordinates the Facilities Operations support for move-in. This summer Bob had a number of important residence hall projects including a very successful and cost effective renovation of the Briton House Apartments. These apartments, constructed in 1976, were badly in need of remodeling. Under Bob’s leadership they received a new roof, windows, exterior trim and paint, plus kitchen and bathroom remodeling – all for under $17/sq. ft. Thank you Bob.|
