from Cheryl Galanis, Accountant, Grainger:

Things have been super busy in our department lately. Recently, Michelle (CRSM Sophomore) was pulled in many different directions and she handled it like a pro. We have had several managers request her assistance in preparing their journal entries to be sent out for storage. On top of that, she has been able to keep up with her invoice, payment and Tranzact processing. She is one of the hardest workers that I have encountered in a very long time. Great things are definitely in her future!
