Est. reading time: 4 mins

Jarrod Degenhard has traveled so much for his work he jokes, “I should know Mr. Hilton by his first name now.” As vice president of environmental services for Guardian Healthcare, he’s rolled through much of Ohio, West Virginia and especially Pennsylvania, covering about 40,000 miles every year. Like so many other people, he’s staying put […]

Mike Emerson – Elmhurst University

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Patience isn’t a virtue to Mike Emerson. At least not while carrying out his duties as executive director of facilities management at Elmhurst University, a private liberal arts school in suburban Chicago and affiliate of the United Church of Christ. “We only have our students for four years,” the otherwise congenial Emerson emphasizes during a […]

In the heart of Koreatown, located in Los Angeles along Wilshire Boulevard, Korean BBQ restaurants, nightlife and historic architecture have all played a role in the neighborhood’s continued growth.

Josh Schaffer – City of Saint Charles School District

Est. reading time: 4 mins

On one hand, 2020 was about keeping up with day-to-day developments; on the other, planning for an uncertain future. Director of Facilities Josh Schaffer and his crew at the City of St. Charles School District in Missouri started planning for the worst—then hustled to make the best out of a tough situation. “About the time […]

Bruce Meyer – Rush Copley Medical Center

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Most six-year-olds spend their days playing with toys or watching Paw Patrol, Odd Squad or SpongeBob SquarePants. It was different for Bruce Meyer. As a young child growing up in rural Illinois, Meyer would sit at a small table with paper, a pencil and a ruler, drawing his family’s house. He’d re-imagine the floorplan so […]

John Scalisi – Rockville Centre Union Free School District

Est. reading time: 4 mins

He didn’t have to go to college or vocational school. Instead, John Scalisi has harnessed the many opportunities to grow on the job since he was 18. The early stint with Nassau County Parks and Recreation’s electronic department taught him many of the basics that decades later he’d apply in his present capacity as director […]

Edward SanClemente – LCB Senior Living

Est. reading time: 4 mins

If he ever tells a former faculty member at his alma mater, “I told you so,” it’ll probably be with good humor. That’s just how it is with Edward SanClemente. But time has attested to his foresight as a Wentworth Institute of Technology architectural student during the 1980s. For it was at the prestigious technical […]
