Celebrating Staff Service

At our annual All Agency In-Service Day, Summit DD recently honored staff who’ve served 20-30 years at the Agency.

“I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of Summit DD, and to consider all of you my coworkers. So I want to thank you personally for all of the things that you do every day. Regardless of what department you work in, it’s all of you that really define Summit DD and make us the great organization that we are,” commented Summit DD Superintendent John Trunk while presenting at the All Agency In-Service Day.
