"Thank you for all you've done with the program - I'm truly grateful for the amazing opportunity it provided. My team KU Med has been a fantastic fit, and the possibilities for growth are nearly endless...If you need a poster child for UCM Workforce Central or any of its programs, please don't hesitate to ask. Should anyone question the value of it, feel free to hold me up as an example - after the $12/hour internship, I returned to a $30/hour contractor position with the same group...Things look good, and I owe it all to the opportunity you, Angie, and Lynette worked to provide."
