Welcome Justin & Reiley!

While TEM has been busy at work this Fall, we haven't had a chance to give our new interns the proper shout out that they deserve...so, drum roll please...

We want to formally welcome Justin Philalack and Reiley Wooten -- our new multimedia interns who joined our team in September!

We're thrilled to have them! From the moment they started, they have been a big asset to our team and we're lucky to have them.  Meet Justin & Reiley!
