(IVC honors Pete Mellinger)….Elwood J.Mellinger passed away earlier in August.
Mellinger was the Holtville City Treasurer at the time of his death, and had served the City in various capacities for the past several years. Mellinger had also been an Agriculture teacher at Imperial Valley College for over 20 years, beginning in the 1960’s. Monday, the College christened the new Plant Environmental Science Lab in his honor. It is now known as Mellinger Hall. Mellinger was aware of the honor, and had driven himself to the college to give his photo for the plaque.
