Black River Technical College (BRTC) Campus Security Supervisor Tony Saylors retired this month after 15 and a half years of service to the BRTC students, faculty, and staff.
“Officer Saylor has provided a consistent presence of safety and security for the BRTC students, staff, and faculty. Tony’s professional demeanor and personality allowed him to appropriately address the law enforcement needs of our campuses. I have truly enjoyed working with Tony and I will miss seeing him patrolling the campus and being an asset to our college community,” said Vice President of Academics Brad Baine.
Saylors was a stronghold and a piece of the BRTC family that students, faculty and staff enjoyed seeing on a daily basis.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the 6+ years Tony and I worked together, and witnessed his care of and dedication to BRTC students daily. Tony epitomized the Campus Police Officer role. He was relaxed and kind, but was keen enough to know when a situation called for a bit more seriousness. He balanced those roles perfectly, and I believe that is why he was liked by so many. His presence will be missed, but I am very happy that he will get to spend more time doing the things he loves and spending more time with his family – specifically those grandkids – whom he talked about daily,” said Dean od Students Dane Dillion, who was previously a campus security officer and worked closely with Saylors.
Prior to working at BRTC, Saylors worked as a Patrolman/K-9 officer for the Pocahontas Police Department for seven years. He will be greatly missed by all.
