Amershek named director of Building Trades and Landscape Maintenance

John Patterson, Pittsburg State University vice president for Administration and Campus Life, today announced the appointment of Tom Amershek as director of Building Trades and Landscape Maintenance. Amershek has served as assistant director of the PSU Physical Plant since 1993.

“Tom’s loyalty to the university and his years of service speak volumes about his affection for PSU,” Patterson said. “Tom clearly has the skills and experience to be successful in this important new role.”

Amershek, who grew up in Frontenac and now lives in Arma, has an associate’s degree in architectural drafting and a bachelor’s of science degree in construction management from PSU.

Amershek said Pittsburg State is fortunate to have a staff of skilled professional employees who maintain the university’s buildings and grounds.

“These men and women play an important and sometimes overlooked role in the university’s educational mission,” Amershek said. “I am proud of the work they do and I’m excited about the opportunities ahead.”

Amershek said he is also proud of his long association with Pittsburg State University.

“I’m proud to be a Gorilla and I look forward to serving my alma mater in every way that I can,” Amershek said.
