The Coalition of Citizens with Disabilities in Illinois acknowledges and commends Gary Rockis, owner of the Morris Business and Technology Center, for his excellence in addressing physical barriers for employees and customers with disabilities and his pursuit to move beyond legal measures to a clear commitment to designing a building that is disability friendly. 

“I’m pleased that the MBTC has been recognized as a public building that serves the needs of all community members,” said Rockis.

“Since the beginning, our mission has been to design a building where all individuals have full access to all services offered by MBTC businesses.”
