TDS Telecom Field Service Technician Danny Waggoner presented this year’s Excellence in Art award at Lakeview Junior High School in New Johnsonville, Tenn. (about 80 miles west of Nashville). This year’s winner, Tyler Mutter, received a 16GB Kindle Fire HD from TDS. Danny, Tyler and the Kindle are all pictured above. TDS sponsors the award each year and Danny is always on hand to make the presentation.
OneNeck’s chief operating officer Jim Hertle, director of Operations Steve Bazinet and Support Center director Clayton Mach helped some Arizona State University business analytics graduate students Yunho Jung, Nishitha Reddy, Wallace Taylor and Anamika Ojha get some much needed real-world experience. The three men sponsored an eight week project that analyzed OneNeck’s ticket processing system. Tom Johnson, OneNeck’s director of Shared Infrastructure Service, lead the team.
We’ll stay in Arizona for our next shout-out. OneNeck partnered with The Arizona Tech Council and Teach for America to share their enthusiasm for Information Technology with 7th and 8th grade students at The Pioneer School in Phoenix, Arizona. OneNeck’s Christopher Payne (SharePoint & Windows Administrator II), Jack Kriegh (Network Engineer IV) and Anand Manuel (Oracle Application Database administrator) each spent time talking to the kids about OneNeck, the services they offer, and the exciting jobs they do every day.
