Campus Champion

Attending Commencement is always fun for Sila Argyle. In her 16 years on the College’s custodial staff, she has celebrated with seniors she met along the way and with two of her six children. This will be her fifth year as supervising janitor of Park Center and this Commencement Committee member’s high standards and attention to detail earn her accolades from peers across campus. Sila never loses focus as a working supervisor of four campus buildings, saying it’s the kids she enjoys the most. “They’re why we’re here,” she says of the students. “It’s why we do what we do.”
