Purdue signature

Scott Helmkamp

Scott Helmkamp (Ground) and crew: Understandably the focus this summer for the Grounds Department was keeping the Purdue landscape alive, and what a challenge that must have been! The garden area in front of the Hansen Life Sciences Research Building did survive and with the welcome rain, burst into an overgrown distraction from inside and out. A quick phone call to Scott Helmkamp and a day later it was manicured and transformed back to an appealing setting. We can again enjoy the unique foliage and morning sunshine through the east window. Thank you to all involved in the cleanup. -- Kristie Dowell (Materials Management Distribution and Hansen building deputy)
