Energy Management's April Monthly Report & Adios!

Once again, our students or this time student is this month's spotlight.  This is the time of the year when we have a certain amount of turnover and... we are working to back fill the open spots with more of the creative talent that this university provides.  I also regretfully have to pass along that two of our permanent employees are also moving on.  They are Javier Navar and William Geiger.  Javier has initiated his own business in the world of commissioning.  Will is joining Cushman & Wakefield to lead the management of some facilities under their direction.  Both of these folks are looking at a bright future.  We wish them well on their new journey.

Well gang...  For me, this is it!  This is my last introduction to the Energy Management Monthly report.  I'm heading out!  It has been an interesting journey, this place it has been.  Sooner or later, it is time to move on.  Those who know the department, know that we tend to have a little fun, sometimes too much, at times not serious enough.  But, if you work hard, you need to play hard too.  That being said, a bit ironic, but there will be no "formal" retirement party.  That is just not my style.  My preference would have been a two week notice and a quick slide out the back door.  I decided that I could not do that to Bill or the team...  I'll be around until June 7, to say good by and make the hand offs.  Stop by if you are on the 4th floor and I plan to get out a bit myself if I can to see some of you.
For a little fun with my exit, I will share a tune.  I recalled this track from Sugarland that pretty much hits the nail on the head.  I told Bill that there are several reasons that the time was right.  One of them is Highway 36.  It is under construction.  Many of you know what that is like thanks to I-35.  So if you have a hankering for a bit of country, check this out, crank it and listen carefully.  I could not say it better myself!

Occupants are VERY satisfied and thankful!

I hope you all had a relaxing 4th of July holiday and had a chance to spend some time with family and friends. July 1st marks the beginning of our new fiscal year; the fiscal year (FY) is the financial timeframe in which we set and manage our budgets, and our fiscal years run from July 1- June 30. If you thought 2019 was already passing too quickly, let me welcome you to FY 2020.
