In a bittersweet announcement from my post as blogger, I’m saddened to say that this Thursday will be Amanda Tucker’s final day here at PR/PR.
You can only steal so many office-supplies before your fellow employees catch on. Our move to our new location obviously affected her ability to effectively pilfer pens and staples, so it didn’t take long until we were made aware of her extracurricular activities. This is what at-home arts and crafts will get you, kids.
In all seriousness, Amanda is moving on to a terrific new opportunity, and she will be sorely missed each and every day. She has left an indelible mark on our company – with her steadfast dedication, her infectious laugh and unparalleled professionalism. I met Amanda near eons ago; back when 56K modems were the source of envy among peers and MTV still played music videos. We remained friends throughout high school, and celebrated together as we prepared to depart to our respective universities.
I owe my position here at PR/PR entirely to her, for informing me of the opening, and putting in a solid word prior to my initial interview. It’s safe to say that my life would be on a completely different path had it not been for Amanda’s faith and confidence: so it will be odd walking into work each day and not seeing her in her familiar spot.
Change is a part of life, and we all wish Amanda the absolute best on her new career path. I can speak on behalf of all of us when I say that her future employer will be receiving an invaluable asset: a person whose heart is as strong as her mind, whose passion for life and love is unrelenting and whose commitment to her friends and family are second-to-none.
Best of luck, Amanda – I’ll miss bothering you on a daily basis.
