In the busyness of everyday life, we often forget to pause, breathe, and reflect. We get so caught up in checking off the next "thing" on our list that we don't even know what task we just completed. We begin to take things for granted and not appreciate the world around us. As a way to step back and reflect, each week I will post a brief story about a relationship with a client. I see this as an opportunity to celebrate and thank each of them for their commitment to and support of Drake University and Drake Athletics. This is what I call "Bulldog Appreciation".
Week 1 - Michael Msuya & Pack 42
I've known Michael for just under two years now. Over this time we have collaborated and planned two fantastic group outings for Pack 42, for which he serves as an adult leader. From the first time we spoke, I have truly enjoyed working with Michael and building our friendship. As a former scout myself, seeing Pack 42 come together and present the colors prior to one of our basketball games flooded my mind with childhood memories. Under Michael's leadership, the scouts proudly marched with our Nation's colors and presented them for the singing of "The Star Spangled Banner."
Each time I converse with Michael in person, over the phone, or via email, I sense his passion and care for others. It is easy to see where the scouts of Pack 42 learn such good character. He is an absolute pleasure to do business with and I am excited to have him and Pack 42 as members of the Bulldog family.
