D’Anniballe lived Steubenville values

To the editor:

Art D’Annibale was an ardent backer of the mission of Jefferson Community College.

His vision kept the school out of politics and on firm fiscal grounds. Art put the welfare of employees first, as I can personally attest to.

JCC would have been a different institution without Art D’Anniballe. I remember him telling me in a time of personal crisis, family comes first. Art lived Steubenville values, not like the leaders who achieved the helm after his passing.

I am glad they included Ed Florak in the ceremony as the current carpetbaggers have no idea or appreciation of what Art and those of us employed at the time accomplished.
