Maybe too often do we tout the power of interning and mentoring, but this week we received a heartwarming note from one of our past interns which started as follows:
Since you deserve a partial credit for your support, I thought you would want me to share this great news I received last week.
The attachment in that email shows that our 1990’s Virginia Tech AOE intern, Ryszard Kaczmarek has been selected as Naval Sea Systems Command 2015 Engineer of the Year and is a Federal Engineer of the Year Finalist.
Today Rich is a Naval Construction Battalion Lieutenant Commander. That makes him a Seabee and therefore makes him the acme of “Can Do!”.
We give thanks for our good fortune and now have decided to forgive Rich for his misguided attempt at defrosting our office refrigerator with a screw driver.
Happy Thanksgiving to all, and especially to Rich and his beautiful family!
