Lee Marchant and John Whikehart, two men who have worked hard to elevate the stature and effectiveness of Ivy Tech Community College in Bloomington, were honored last week by the college. The School of Nursing will be named for Marchant, a long-time board member and advocate for Ivy Tech. The auditorium in the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center will be named the Linda and John Whikehart Auditorium for former Chancellor Whikehart and his wife. It was under Whikehart’s initiative and leadership that the college took over the Waldron and has maintained it as a community resource.

The program and facility names will recognize people who are very deserving.
