Selecto Star News A Quarterly Publication - March 2017
Star Story - Nolan Legg
Our Selecto Star for this month is Nolan Legg. Nolan works in our Assembly Dept. and maintains Quality Control for Selecto.
Recently Nolan took the initiative to sign up for classes to obtain a Water Specialist certification from the Water Quality Association (WQA). Certified water treatment professionals are individuals who have completed a voluntary credentialing process through WQA's Professional Certification Program. To become a WQA certified professional, the candidate must pass a comprehensive examination and accept WQA's Code of Ethics for the Water Quality Improvement Industry. WQA's program tests and certifies only individuals, not dealerships or companies. Great job Nolan, we are so proud of you and your accomplishment!

Ehud represented Selecto well at Donald J. Trump's Inauguration on January 20, 2017 in Washington DC.

The safety of our employees is the number one priority at Selecto. You never know when an accident might happen so we decided to get prepared. Recently, 3 members of Selecto’s Safety Team attended a training event at the American Red Cross. Dr. Cang Li, Tim Owens and Sharon Craddock trained and earned certifications for First Aid, CPR, and AED training. Their certifications are good for 2 years.
ATLANTA FALCONS MAKE THE SUPERBOWL!
The Atlanta Falcons, after an 11-5 record, finished the season as one of the two best teams in the NFC this year. Then the Falcons defeated the Packers to advance to Super Bowl LI as the NFC champions. The Falcons had not made it to the Superbowl since 1995. The entire Atlanta area was buzzing. Selecto wanted to get into the Super Spirit and show how excited we were to be Falcons fans. On the Friday before Super Bowl Sunday, Selecto had a Falcons party complete with Wings, Chili, Nachos and Salsa. It was quite a spread! We all wore Falcons gear, even George dressed up for the party.
