“Words can hardly begin to express the level of gratitude I have for being given the opportunity to be a part of a one-of-a-kind experience. I am forever grateful for DET’s instruction, knowledge, wisdom, and the tools you have shared with me to reach my goals as an individual and together as an organization.  The sheer amount of knowledge and wisdom shared has opened a window for me to see the true potential of one’s self as an integral part of the vast network of people that play vital roles in our industry. Through your education and training, I can see just how valuable each piece of the puzzle truly is. The lessons taught and learned this past week will not only be applied here at the office and with the Carpenters throughout my career, but they will be applied in all aspects of my life for you have given me life skills and the tools to sharpen those skills. Truly, I am blessed for having been a part of this experience. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
