NEW FOUNTAIN ENHANCES CAMPUS

Kudos to the Plant Facilities crew for their lovely landscaping and installaton of the new fountain between the CE and SC buildings.

The fountain was donated by West President Nabil Abu-Ghazaleh in memory of his father Shukri S. Abu-Ghazaleh whose voice, he said, is still a strong motivating force in his life.
