IVCC President Jerry Corcoran accepted the check in front of the new building set to open Nov. 1. Bob Vickrey, Peru’s director of community development, has spent a lifetime in economic development and was instrumental in the creation of Interstate 39 and the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Bridge in the 1980s. He worked alongside Peter Miller, Jr., and his son Peter Miller III, while he was a vice president at Miller Group Media.
