Passing of Sammie Peterson, Building Services Retiree

I am sad to inform the College community that Sammie Lee Peterson Jr., retired Building Services senior labor foreman, passed away on March 3, 2018.

Sammie began working at MCC in 1977 as a civil service employee in the position of light laborer in the Housekeeping Department and was promoted several times during his service. In 1981, he achieved the rank of senior labor foreman.

A recipient of the 1993 Distinguished Support Staff Award, Sammie was often praised for going the extra mile for his department. He was among the employees recognized for their invaluable assistance in responding to a building fire on the Brighton Campus in 1997.

Sammie retired in 2002 after 25 years of service.

At the time of this posting, memorial services have not been scheduled yet and his obituary was not available online.
