When I was growing up we had a fancy red plate with the words "You Are Special" written around the edges that was prominently displayed on the hutch. Whenever anyone had a special personal accomplishment (birthday, award won, recital, etc.) they got to use the "red plate" at mealtime. I wanted to carry on this tradition in my own family and received this "Celebrate" plate for Christmas a couple years ago. Unfortunately, it got stashed away and was only recently rediscovered during my musical closet escapades.
Tonight was the plate's official debut with Austin being the first to use it. He has officially been promoted to Director of Account Management at Short's Travel Management. He is now responsible for managing all existing corporate and sports client relationships and the 2-3 account managers who will be underneath him. He will also continue to be involved in winning new outside sales. It has been a stressful last couple months to get to this point, but I think he's excited to implement some new ideas and processes. Congratulations, Austin!
P.S. For those of you who know Austin well, you'll be happy to note that the first meal served on the Celebrate plate was one of his favorites--frozen burritos. ;o)
