    Congratulations to Bryan Smith, who is the most recent Staff Recognition Award Winner. Bryan was recognized as the 2nd Quarter Peer-to-Peer recipient and will receive $250 issued through payroll. He has also received a framed certificate. 

    Matthew Dubin nominated Bryan and included the following comments regarding Bryan's fantastic performance: 


    It is hard to overestimate the contributions Bryan makes to the success of the optics shop. His knowledge and experience are both broad and deep, and he is the go-to person for a variety of subjects. His knowledge of working with large optics is impressive. He's the local expert when it comes to using the laser tracker for precision measurements. His knowledge of machining and use of mechanical setups allows him to make insightful suggestions on how to design any number of systems. Whenever I am starting a design, I always run the concept by Bryan. I don't think I've ever done that and not gotten at least one helpful recommendation. Not only does Bryan have an excellent grasp of how to design a system, he is the person I want putting it together. Whenever we find the inevitable problems, Bryan able to identify them quickly, determine the best solution and execute it quickly. On top of all of this, Bryan is friendly, personable and easy to work with. He is an incredibly valuable asset in the optics shop.
