Ellen and Guy collaborated to find an interview conducted by a Trustee of President Mortola that appeared in the Pace Press in the late 1960s. Guy then had it framed and sent to the Trustee.

Westchester - June
Gzim Hakanjin, Human Resources, Westchester
Recognized by Lisa Dash-Grimes, Human Resources, New York City/Westchester:
Gzim Hakanjin is a brand new student assistant to Staffing and Recruitment, working with us in the Valhalla office. Gzim was tasked, as his first assignment, to turn survey data into a visual format that would be easily read and understood by me as well as be able to serve as presentation material when educating others on the topic. Gzim produced a PowerPoint that was incredibly creative, easy to understand and captured all the data we required so we could tell a convincing story on this particular topic. When you are lucky enough to hire a student who can hit it out of the ballpark on their first try, that is a good sign of great things to come. Welcome aboard Gzim and we look forward to more homeruns from you.
