After serving Campion Academy for 20 years, Glenn O'Halloran, Plant Services Director, will be departing from Campion. O’Halloran has overseen the maintenance of the campus, assisted in Literature Evangelism, coached varsity teams, and instructed many student workers over the years. O'Halloran has had a great impact on Campion Academy. Principal Reeder shared, “O’Halloran has been instrumental in implementing safety procedures and measures on campus. All the keycards and alarms on the doors were installed by him. O’Halloran has always had Campion’s campus safety as a priority.”
O’Halloran’s ability to train his student workers is something that stands out about him. Caleb Wehling, who has worked under O’Halloran for four years, shares, “O’Halloran has been a big influence on my work ethic. He has taught me that it’s okay if things get broken and that getting upset doesn’t solve anything. Fixing things is a part of life.”
Reeder agrees that O’Halloran has been highly influential in Campion students’ lives. “I have always loved sending people to work for O’Halloran, knowing they will learn great life skills,” he states.
O’Halloran has taken an opportunity to buy a local plumbing company, Chambers Plumbing. Campion will greatly miss O’Halloran as he says goodbye. Reeder shares, “We will miss his hard work and dedication towards our campus. I personally will miss laughing and joking around with Glenn. His knowledge of where things are on this campus and how to fix things have been greatly appreciated during his time at Campion.”
While O’Halloran officially parted from Campion on March 31, he lives locally and will continue to do contract work and help a new Plant Services Director transition. To finish out this school year, while students are not on campus, staff members, including the front office staff and John Boutot, are pitching in to maintain our grounds and buildings.
