Facilities Management

I needed to have a desk moved and then moved back to where it originally was located due tospace constraints. Keith Tucker, Kevin Alexander, Slava Fedotov, and Abe Gallegos all came through and were able to arrange my new office perfectly! I would also like to give a shout out to Vicki Irey for taking my calls and getting the work orders out. These folks made my day!

Carolyn Montgomery

Student Health Center


Carolyn always has a smile no matter what kind of day we are having. In spite of ill patients or ill staff, she manages to make sure all patients are seen in a timely manner and is pleasant to all the staff and students. She has many duties including ordering supplies and equipment, supervising staff members and collaborating with all health center members. She has a level head and can be counted on in any situation. I love coming to work knowing she will be here! Great job Carolyn! Keep it up!
