Guillaume Masseus.

Position: Equipment operator in grounds and building maintenance. Working on the campus grounds, primarily taking care of the garden at Prospect House. In the fall, he and other gardeners plant 8,000 to 10,000 spring-flowering bulbs. After they fade, the crew replaces them with annuals grown during the winter in the University's greenhouse. During the summer months, some 25 to 30 species of annuals and perennials are in bloom at one time in the garden. As the summer plants wither, the gardeners replace them with fall chrysanthemums.

Quote: "I like what I'm doing. It's lovely to be outside in this garden."

Other interests: Spending time with his 10-year-old daughter, cabinetry and watching baseball.
