So long…we already miss you!
We are still so sad to lose both Tigsit and Nicole and are trying to get used to life without them at the FRC. Of course we’re so happy for them…Tigist will welcome her new baby soon and Nicole will be in graduate school!
Yes, we’re lucky to have Tania and Jasmine in the front office - they’re already doing a great job!
This is Tigist and Nicole (feeling a little sad maybe?) on their last day with us.
