    A Celebration of Life was held for Professor Fred Pilch.

Earlier this month, QCC administration, faculty and staff gathered at the Harrington Learning Center for a Celebration of Life to pay homage to longtime colleague Frederick “Fred” Pilch, who passed away in late September. Mr. Pilch was a professor of Computer Information Systems and had 37 years of service to the College. He was a trusted and valued co-worker to many at QCC.

During the Celebration of Life, words of friendship were shared by his colleagues, followed by a tree planting in his honor at the south end of Ahlfors Hall.
