Sharon Goff Receives Commitment to Community Award The Ambassador Club of the Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce is very pleased to honor Sharon Goff with the December 2017 Commitment to Community Award. Sharon Goff is a dedicated volunteer who shows all of us that perseverance really can make a difference in a community. She volunteers and supports organizations that she is truly passionate about and does not expect any recognition for her endless hours of service.
Joy Prigge, Ambassador Chair and Wendy Pfeil, Chamber Executive present the Commitment to Community Award to Sharon Goff
Sharon has been an Ambassador for the Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce since 1990 and has been the driving force every December for the collection of school supplies and secret Santa items that are donated to Belleville School District #118. She also makes it a top priority to attend as many ribbon cuttings as possible to lend support to businesses just opening or those that are celebrating an anniversary. Sharon feels it is important to let them know that the community is behind them.
She also volunteers at almost every Chamber event including, Business After Hours, Ale Fest and Chili Cook-off. The Chamber knows that if they are ever looking for help, they can always call Sharon and if sheâ€™s available she will graciously give her time. Sharon is not only involved with the Chamber but also serves on a variety of other community committees. Since 1998 she has volunteered on the Belleville Illinois Tourism committee. Because of her dedication to Belleville Tourism, she often is called on to volunteer to help greet the many tour buses or groups that visit Belleville. This may mean a tour of the Cathedral of St. Peter, the historic districts, or shopping downtown. More recently she has volunteered to help with the 9/11 Memorial Walkway of Southern Illinois. She assisted them with donating funds for transportation of the Steel Beam from the World Trade Centers. The beam is now on display at the 9/11 Memorial Walkway. Some of Sharonâ€™s other volunteer work includes Belleville Interfaith Food pantry where she stocks food every Monday. Then she heads to the Shelter Shop where you can find her every Monday, Tuesday and Saturday assisting them in whatever task needs to be completed. She also takes time every May to volunteer at Art on the Square in the City of Belleville Tourism booth. Belleville has always prided itself on the volunteer spirit of the community and Sharon exemplifies this spirit. She is always willing to lend a helping hand where needed. She has not let retirement slow her down.

Spotlight on Education | Signal Hill District #181 When you drive the busy streets of Belleville and then turn to travel down Signal Hill Place, there is a sense of tranquility. The quiet park and Signal Hill School are hugged by the cozy houses and the tall trees that surround it. There is feeling of coming home as I park in front of the school each day. Signal Hill feels like home. The benches outside and sidewalk leading to the front porch are welcoming and cozy. The porch is where our parents drop off their children each day, and it is where our teachers return the students to their parents each day after school. The front yard is a place of congregation and conversation each day for our parents and teachers. This feeling of home is felt by those who visit and our many Warriors who have attended at SHS.
Signal Hill School is nestled in tradition and family values. It boasts of being a walking school district— just one of a few schools left in Illinois who do not own vehicles. Without daily district transportation, we are blessed with the bustle of families crossing streets with our crossing guards and walking down sidewalks all around Signal Hill. It is still an amazing sight even after a year. Im appreciative of the lovable interaction of parents and children walking hand in hand , and the hugs from families as children separate to go into the school. It is undeniably a site that I have not witnessed in other districts. But the love doesn’t end there. At Signal Hill you can feel the warmth of the teachers, staff, and community reflect those family values in everything we do. This year is no different. Signal Hill School continues its love of tradition inside the brick and mortar building. After 50 years, we continue our annual 8th grade spring play and celebrate our Halloween parade down the block complete with SHFD leading the parade. Traditions like these bring the families out to celebrate the children and to enjoy each other’s company. Teachers sponsor programs like Girls on the Run and Boys on the Run, and STEaM and Wellness nights to keep our children active. They also initiate fun activities like the Teacher’s Trivia Night and Silent Auction and even create fun videos like Chat n’ Chill to support SHS. Selfless acts of helping others like doing a car wash fundraiser, raising dollars for Kelsey’s Hope to cure cancer, to collecting Secret Santa donations for those in need fill the Warrior hallways. Acknowledging those who do the Right Thing and modeling those character traits is a practice for all ages. Learning never stops at Signal Hill and the welcoming feeling you get when you arrive is earned each day by those who work and attend here. Im proud to be a Warrior because the heart they show each day makes a difference in all those who travel here.

Chamber Member Update LINDENWOOD BELLEVILLE GRADUATE FINDS CAREER MAGIC AT DISNEY’S ESPN WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS Lindenwood University-Belleville graduate De’Marcus Terry impressed his supervisors so much during an internship at Walt Disney World near Orlando, Fla., that he’s been asked to stay on at the theme park on a permanent basis. Terry, after leaders of several departments at the giant amusement company engaged in a battle for his services when his internship ended, settled on a job as a competition coordinator at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports athletic complex. A May graduate with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a minor in marketing, Terry said he chose that job over the others offered because it closely lines up with his goal of forging a career in sports. He hopes someday to work at a school as an athletic department director. “This has been such a great experience, so much greater than I could have imagined,” said Terry, a Florida native, about the internship and the full-time job that followed. “This has truly been a blessing.” In all, Terry was approached about four different permanent positions at Disney before whittling the list down to two and then opting to take his current role. Brandi Copeland, a senior recruiter with Disney, wrote the graduate’s former Lindenwood academic advisor to say that Terry was “one of my favorite hires to date.” His supervisors credit Terry’s popularity as an employee to his thorough nature, gregarious personality and sharp leadership skills. He said Lindenwood Belleville helped him to develop those features and to be the best he can be. “I had a lot on my plate at Lindenwood,” said Terry. “In addition to playing football and being on the track team, I took part in every club and organization I could. There were so many opportunities there, the only time I wasn’t busy was when I was asleep. That experience taught me so much and exposed me to so many different things.” Terry’s role includes organizing sporting events, including tournaments for kids from youth leagues all the way through the college ranks. “I coordinate all kinds of events on the site,” Terry said. “I make sure when they get here that coaches and players get everything they need. It’s my job to make sure everything is taken care of to accommodate everyone the best we can.” .........................................................................................................................................................................................................

The exterior is uniquely branded with 42-foot-tall signage over the main entrance that required new structural and finishing elements. Dick’s Sporting Goods celebrated their grand opening on October 12, 2017. IMPACT Strategies was pleased to work with Kimco Realty Group, owner of Fairview City Centre, on another successful project and big asset for the Fairview Heights community.

HOLLAND CONSTRUCTION PARTNERS WITH FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS ON CITY’S FUTURE REC CENTER
When the City of Fairview Heights began moving forward with plans to build a recreation complex they looked for a construction partner with long standing ties to the community, someone they could trust to help make their vision for this new facility a reality.
“A couple of years ago when Mayor Mark Kupsky came in, he had a lot of new ideas for our City and a recreation center was one of them,” said Angela Beaston, Director of Parks and Recreation for Fairview Heights. She said the 30‐acre site for The Recreation Complex, Fairview Heights’ 58,000‐ square‐foot indoor/outdoor rec center, is the former location of Our Lady of Assumption Church at Bunkum Road and Interstate 64 on the city’s west side. Grant School District 110 purchased the property after Our Lady merged with St. Albert the Great to form Holy Trinity Catholic Church and School on Fountains Parkway. As plans for the future recreation center progressed, the City hired Sports Facilities Advisors to conduct a feasibility study, Beaston said. Out of that study came recommendations for what the $18 million project would entail. At that point, she added, the City chose local architect, EWR Architects Inc., for the design and began interviewing various construction management firms. Holland Construction Services’ experience in building rec centers in the St. Louis region gave the City confidence that the company was a smart pick. “What really attracted us to Holland was that they’ve built so many projects of this nature,” Beaston said. “Holland has experience in making recreation centers happen, and we felt very comfortable in the work they’ve done in this specialty area,” she said. City staff visited the Bridgeton Recreation Center – a slightly smaller yet similar type of project that Holland recently completed – and were impressed by what they saw, she added. “We really, really liked it,” said Beaston, referring to the 56,000‐square‐foot Bridgeton center that Holland completed in early 2016. “Other construction companies were certainly also qualified but we chose Holland not only for their experience, but also because it’s easy to work with them. Everyone at Holland that we’ve worked with so far couldn’t have been nicer or more understanding of what we want our project to be. Holland’s preconstruction department’s management of the estimating and subcontractor bidding process resulted in a project that met our goals for the recreation center within our budget. We’re confident in Holland to meet our ambitious construction timeframe,” she said. “Our target date for completion is February 2019, which is the City’s 50th anniversary. This new center, recently branded as The REC, will be the location of our kick-off celebration.” Holland Project Executive Ryan Savage and Project Manager DJ Weymouth said the builder’s goal is to work as a relationship-based contractor rather than a low-bid contractor. “We truly take a team approach with every project we build,” Savage said. “And that team not only includes Holland, but also our architectural partner, our subcontractors, our suppliers and most definitely our client, in this case the City of Fairview Heights. We believe in bringing everyone into the process as early as possible, and building those relationships early on as well.” Nearly 12,000 square feet of the recreation center will be dedicated to an indoor aquatic facility with a 25-yard multilane lap pool, children’s spray ground, slides, sprays, lazy river and a vortex. The center will also feature a 6,000-squarefoot fitness center with areas for free weights, floor exercise, aerobic and group fitness; a gymnasium; a climbing structure; elevated running tracks; a 400-meter, six-lane running track; a game area for billiards, cards and table tennis; locker rooms; multipurpose and party rooms, and administration offices. Outdoor soccer fields, a dog park, pavilions, playgrounds and a 1.5-mile walking path and nature trail are also part of the plans. “We’re excited and honored that the City of Fairview Heights selected Holland,” said Savage. “We view it as a special opportunity to be building this rec center - not only for the City of Fairview Heights, but also for the entire community and visitors to the City. We take that seriously and we take pride in that,” he added.

SWIC AVIATION PROGRAM HELPED NASA PILOT GET CAREER OFF THE GROUND When pilot Craig O’Mara signed up for a ground school class at Southwestern Illinois College while he was still a teenager, he had no idea that it would be the start of a 40-year career in aviation. O’Mara, 63, of Fairview Heights, earned his Private Pilot Certificate at then Belleville Area College in 1970, while he was a junior at Assumption High School in East St. Louis. Today, he flies a Boeing 787 for United Airlines and NASA’s Boeing 747SP “SOFIA” Research plane for astrophysics/deep space missions. “SWIC gave me the solid foundation to begin my career in aviation and got me to where I am today and for that I’ll be forever grateful,” he said. He completed most of his flight training while in the U.S. Air Force stationed at March Air Force Base in Riverside, Calif. Later, he went on to earn his Bachelor of Science in Aviation Management from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. O’Mara spent 26 year in the USAF and Reserves flying the C-9A “Nightingale” hospital aircraft and serving as an instructor/evaluator at Scott AFB. He retired from the Air Force in 2002. SWIC offers an Associate in Applied Science degree in Aviation Pilot Training with airplane and helicopter options, plus Aviation Pilot Training and Private Pilot certificates. The program is FAA Part 141 certified. Military veteran students in the college’s Aviation Pilot Training program can now use their VA and Illinois Veteran’s Grant educational benefits for the new Helicopter Pilot Training option, said Program Coordinator Keith Mueller. In addition, SWIC offers an AAS in Aviation Management and an Aircraft Dispatcher Certificate. Graduates of either program are eligible to enter the Southern Illinois University Carbondale Bachelor of Science in Aviation Management program offered on the SWIC Belleville Campus in a weekend format. “The program offers an excellent foundation for individuals who want to pursue a career in aviation or just want to fly for enjoyment,” Mueller said. “There are unlimited career opportunities ranging from commercial airlines to corporate aviation to medical transport.” During O’Mara’s long and varied career he has completed 32,000 hours of flight. He has flown a B-25 Mitchell, AC-47 Gunship for the Commemorative Air Force and a museum in Kansas; taught at the Scott AFB Aero Club, Ideal Aviation and as an independent instructor in the St. Louis area; and served on the Board of Directors for the National Association
