HARRISBURG, Pa. – HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, dedicated the newly renovated Ted Lick Administration Building today, Tuesday, March 4, 2014, on the Harrisburg Campus of HACC, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of HACC’s first Board of Trustees meeting.
HACC employees, retired employees, students, Board of Trustees members, HACC Foundation Board members, donors and alumni joined John J. "SKI" Sygielski, Ed.D., HACC president, as he formally dedicated the building. The two-story, 30,000-square-foot building is named in the honor of late Ted Lick, a founding HACC Foundation Board member and donor. Among those in attendance at the celebration were Mrs. Kelly Lick, the widow of Ted Lick, and Mr. Andy Lick, son of Ted Lick.
“As a devoted father, husband, successful businessman, mentor and friend to many, Ted Lick always found time to make a positive difference in the community. He never wavered in his commitment to improving the lives of others,” said Sygielski. “The Ted Lick Administration Building will be a continuing reminder of his legacy as a life-long friend of HACC and founding member of the HACC Foundation Board. Through the work that takes place in this building, we will honor the memory of Ted Lick and his inspiring leadership and service to others.”
The Ted Lick Administration Building houses approximately 125 HACC employees, who provide service and support to the College, including HACC’s five campuses in Gettysburg, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Lebanon and York, as well as HACC’s Virtual Learning program.

Today we celebrate those 12 original members of the Board and honor their vision and dedicated service to HACC,” said Tim Sandoe, HACC Board of Trustees chair. “In the past half-century, 63 men and women have served as HACC trustees. On behalf of the entire Board of Trustees, we thank them for their dedicated service and for helping to open doors of opportunity for generations of students.”
The building boasts a vibrant and welcoming color scheme and is Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council, signifying that the building was designed and built to minimize environmental impact.
