We are delighted to shine the spotlight on a distinguished member of our staff who by his or her efforts brings great credit to our organization. This month we are honored to salute:
John has been an exemplary Mentor with our Chapter ever since joining in December 2008. In that time he has shared his extensive business expertise with hundreds of SCORE clients, always assisting them with care and understanding. And it is those hallmarks that we salute in John, as we honor him as our Special Counselor of the Quarter, for July, August, and September.
At the same time we would be remiss were we not to extend a very big Thank You for the yeoman service John has provided to our Chapter every year he has been a Mentor with us, by being the “guy to go to” to make our Annual Business Conferences the major successes they have been. It is John, more than any other person, who has handled a myriad of tasks at each of those events over the past 8 years that we have been doing them. It is John who has gone to the site in the very early hours of the morning, before sunrise, to see that important signs are placed in strategic locations to direct attendees arriving on campus. It is John who has run the vital errands to get and transport the cases of water, the many trays of food, the cases of soda, safely bringing them onsite, then carrying them to point of use, many times all by himself.
At the office you will often find John at the computer, entering his notes and observations about his clients, after first gathering all the needed information sought in our Global Profile, and doing it in a way that has earned him the admiration of his fellow Counselors. Even when his outside business commitments demanded much of him, John has always found time to be of service to others.
In the long history of our Chapter, which was founded in 1977 in a little storefront in Delray Beach, we have been blessed with the outstanding services of many fine men and women. It is to that Pantheon of leaders that we now proudly add the name of our friend, dedicated Mentor, and superb human being, John Ankerman.
Take a bow, John, you have richly earned the designation of our Counselor of the Quarter for July, August, and September 2017!
