Telecommunicator of the Year

I would like to nominate Cal as Telecommunicator of the Year for several reasons.  First of all, Cal is always a positive and encouraging person to everyone around him.  He is always hard working and is a great coach.  I have listened to him take calls that would send most of us packing on a regular basis.  He not only does a fabulous job handling those calls, but he also is there for anyone who has also gone through a rough call.  He strives to make a difference at BOEC and outside of BOEC he has taken many children under his care with his wife, including babies that are up all through the night (that alone is a sainthood nomination).  Cal is an outstanding team member all the way around.
