A note from Jeff Duda...
Hello to everyone reading this. My name is Jeff Duda and I was extremely fortunate to have recently been awarded the Newcomer of the Year Award, at the recently completed WWOA convention. I had no idea that I had been nominated, and when I heard my name, I was stunned. I went up to receive the award and had nothing ready to say to all the people that were there. I am taking a moment now to thank those that should have been thanked that night. I need to thank my bosses Dale, Ron, and Al, for the opportunity to work at the Sheboygan WWTP, and all the help and guidance they have given me. My fellow operators, Randy, Willard, Dan and Scott, thank you for all your teaching, support and belief in me, to help make this award happen. To the mechanics, Tony, Sarge, and Bill, thank you for all your help on the technical end of operations. To Steve, Rich, Tim, Tom and Barb, thank you for being supportive and being there when I needed help. Lastly, to my wife, Sandy, son Dan, and daughter Erica, and parents Tony and Phyllis, thank you for always believing in me and supporting me and loving me as much as you do. This award is a part of all of you.
