Group Farewell Card to a Beloved Boss with Kudoboard

This past summer, Jacqueline Saenz received a Kudoboard from her colleagues and friends at IBM to say goodbye and let her know that she would be missed.  A quote from one colleague, Marv, reads as follows:

“Ahh, I don’t even know where to start. I am definitely writing this with a heavy heart.

You were my first EVER boss.
You were my first EVER career mentor.
You were the first person to get me on a boat…eventually (Inside joke)!
You were the first person at IBM to welcome me, and then pick on me for wearing a suit
You were also the first and ONLY person to take me to Freebirds..again and again haha………and again hahaha
You were the first person to give me a chance to display my talents.
You were the first person to show me that sugar gets you more than salt.

You were the first to show me a lot of things in my life, and I just hope this isn’t the first time I told you just how much I appreciated every FIRST we had!!

I’m going to miss the hell out of you being my first manager, but I’m happy I got a friend for life.”
