September 2017

The Appreciation Blog is an opportunity for ABA employees to express their appreciation to fellow colleagues for the small or helpful deeds that would otherwise go unnoticed.

To: Debra Deakin (9/20/2017)
Thank you, Deb, for all your help these past months. You have been such a tremendous resource to the Budget Office and we sure do appreciate you coming out of retirement to help us with our various projects. You have been a life saver to us and we cannot thank you enough. We will miss you! Thanks again! -Stacy Hayano

To: Charlie Eyster (9/20/2017)
Thank you, Charlie, for taking the lead and training so many of our campus colleagues on how to use the Finance Data Warehouse (FDW). You have done a great job of creating the web videos and guides and the training documents. I sure do appreciate the time and energy you have put forth towards this project. You have scheduled all the training sessions, provided training information to the BPRT participants, and have been so helpful to our users. Thank you very much! -Stacy Hayano

To: Officer Nathan Rice (9/13/2017)
Officer Rice, I spoke with you a couple months ago about our son, Josh. You had mentioned that you remembered him from when he was on the streets over by La Riviera. You told me that you had always had a positive interaction with him and that you thought he was a good guy in a bad situation. I want to thank you for being such a nice person to our son! Knowing that there are officers out there willing to take the time to be kind to those are misfortunate make me happy. Thank you again! -Don Nahhas
