Every year, there are those heroes that make a team successful just so that a group of students could enjoy, learn and get inspired. This year is coming to an end and I want to take a moment and thank those on my team who made the year possible, and hope you do too in this thread. We all know its not easy to build a robot, or make arrangements for a trip of a whole team to any event. We know we are obnoxious kids who make mistakes while we have fun and cause problems. It would be nice if you can name some of your mentors and give them a personalized Thank you in front of the CD community to compensate and to generally thank them for everything. If you don’t want to write a long post, atleast their names and a small thank you will help. So here I go:
Wayne Cokeley: You have made up for everything we are lazy to do and kept yourself awake in the nights just so that we can go on these trips and enjoy. Thank you so much.
Lauralynne Cokeley: Unbelievable organization stuff for 25 and 1089. You are definitely a mom to our team.
John Chester: Oh wow, a parent engineer - so cool. Thank you soo much for helping me with the encoders and the rest of the season with maintaining the robot.
Shaun McNulty: Thank you very much for backing me up when I was right and guiding the drive team on how to play the game.
Kristina Evanouskas: Volcano crew and has done quite a lot to help keep the team under control. Amazing person.
Big Mike: Thanks for those encoders man… good stuff.
The BMS crew - Walter, Kevin, Tony, Charlie, John & Mike: Thanks a ton for being there to help us go through the build season and the season even though you had a very tough time at your job. I will always value and never forget all that you have taught me.
I feel nothing but honored knowing all of you.
Thank you very much,
