Seattle Sutton donates to IVCC

Seattle Sutton of Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating recently made a $10,000 donation to Illinois Valley Community College’s nursing program for instructional equipment. Sutton visited IVCC to tour nursing facilities and the new Peter Miller Community Technology Center. Pictured from left to right are Dean of Health Professions Bonnie Campbell, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs Sue Isermann, Sutton, nursing instructors Ann Bruch, Jennifer Savoia, Laura Hodgson, Linda Hanley, special projects assistant to the president Reed Wilson, nursing instructor Deb Pumo, Vice President for Learning and Student Development Lori Scroggs and President Jerry Corcoran. “When Seattle began her business many years ago, she had assistance from our Small Business Development Center. It is remarkable what she has gone on to accomplish across the Midwest,” said Corcoran. “Seattle is as passionate about nursing, a profession she once worked in, as she is about healthy eating. Her generosity will enhance an already strong program.”
