Bureau Celebrates With Staff Appreciation Cookout
On June 30, Bureau directors and staff celebrated the Fourth of July with a special staff-appreciation cookout. More than 100 Bureau employees turned out to enjoy hotdogs, hamburgers, bratwurst, and veggie burgers grilled and served up by Director Scott Tinker and Associate Directors Jay Kipper, Michael Young, and Mark Shuster. The directors hosted the event to express their gratitude to and celebrate the efforts of the Bureau’s research, support, and technical staff.
Behind the scenes, Administrative Associate Kim LaValley coordinated the event with assistance from Nayeli Silva and Monica Verastegui. Numerous others—including Nathan Ivicic, Kenneth Edwards, Bill Molthen, Rudy Lucero, Brandon Williamson, Dennis Campa, Jan Braboy, Melissa Garcia, Kyleen Piejko, and Francine Mastrangelo—contributed to make the event a tasty success from start to finish.
