Thank You

StrickerWeb“This was great news for me. I have a long tradition here. My father began working at Union Carbide in 1959, the year I was born. I’ve been working here for 30 years, and I’ve worked in all three buildings that have been donated to the state. These are excellent facilities, and I love the campus atmosphere. We have a lot of good technological minds in the state, and when facilities like this go away, they go away. And you don’t get that back.”
