Rocco Vonelli smilesWhite van. A smile. Humble. Rocco Vonelli keeps Lafayette’s facilities operating. Fundamental stuff, and easy to take for granted as long as the power works and the campus is well lighted. Rocco makes that happen. He is a masterful and skilled electrician. Thank goodness. He deals with solving risky problems, ones that can hurt you and me. Rocco makes it look easy. He brightens my day, literally and spiritually. —Mark Crain, Simon Professor of Political Economy and chair of policy studies
