A very thankful Thanksgiving

We asked the college what they’re most thankful for this year. Here are some of the responses we received! Leave a comment and tell us about what you’re most appreciative for this holiday season, too.

Happy Thanksgiving!

“I’m thankful for my beautiful family!” ~Jacquelyn Clapper-Erpelding, academic advisor

“The thing that I am most thankful for is the teachers who don’t give up on me and the faith that God has in me to see me through tough times.” ~Tammy Maness, Cyber Security/Information Assurance student

“I am a retired tool and die maker after more than 30 years in manufacturing and working in many different trades. I am thankful for my health and the opportunity that Ivy Tech provides for me to work as an adjunct instructor. I teach several courses in machine tool technology at the Warsaw Site. So much training was invested in me during my apprenticeship program and the many years after I became a journeyman tool and die maker. I am thankful that I am now in a position to give back to an industry that has been good to me for so many years.

“New skilled workers are always in demand, and training helps to prepare these needed workers for their chosen fields. Ivy Tech has an important part in this future.” ~Gary Pudell, Machine Tool Technology adjunct instructor


“I’m thankful for my giant, slobbery dog, Caesar. He greets me with enthusiasm and a wagging tail every day when I come home from work, insists on snuggles before bed, and is a great gardening buddy.” ~Sandra Fouty, visual and online communications coordinator

“I am thankful for the 39 years and 345 days I had with my dad, who passed away in August of this year.” ~Brad Peters, assistant director, Academic Advising
