Kudos to the Mail Services Team

Major kudos and a HUGE thank you to Print & Mail Services for all their incredible help. Karen Pierce and Dante Parker, in particular, were instrumental in helping our office with our move to Bostwick Lane. That whole process included confirming our new address, but the critical piece to our relocation was Dante and his efforts in helping us secure important mail for our office at the end of the calendar year. He went above and beyond to make sure mail was found, bundled together, and brought to us for speedy processing. Karen, Dante, and ALL of you in the Print Shop and Post Office: Thank you so much for everything that you do, not just at certain times of the year, but throughout the entire year! - Submitted by Amy St. John in Advancement Systems
