The life and legacy of a former Caterpillar C-E-O continues on at a local high school.

Glen Barton worked to make Quest Charter Academy reality for Peoria.


Thursday,  a memorial wall was revealed and the school renamed as the Quest Charter Academy Glen Barton high school campus.


The director of development communications says Mr. Barton was there from day one.

"We feel his presence here everyday," said Cindy Ardis-Jenkins. "Glen would be here everyday talking to the students talking to the staff. He was just a regular fixture here. And we will just forever remember him."

Barton died last October at the age of 77.
