GREELEY, CO – May 10, 2018 – As the crowd chanted, “1-2-3 Go Aardvarks,” an Aardvark Avenue traffic sign was unveiled at the 16th street and 47th avenue entrance of Aims Community College on May 9. Arty the Aardvark, is Aims’ beloved mascot.
“Aardvark Avenue is a great example of the wonderful partnership and community spirit by the City of Greeley,” said Aims’ CEO/President Leah L. Bornstein. “I'd like to especially thank City Manager Roy Otto, Assistant City Manager Becky Safarik, Public Works Director Joel Hemesath and Community Development Director Brad Mueller for their support in making this happen. Go Aardvarks!”
Greeley Mayor John Gates noted, “We are pleased that Aims is able to make significant,
ongoing contributions developing a capable work force here in Weld County. And the
Aardvarks, including Arty, deserve this kind of recognition along with the school
‘spirit’ he represents.”
