NEWS: Frank Hooks Special Recognition

Our most recent quarterly team meeting concluded with a special presentation to one of our most respected and honorable employees, Frank Hooks. Anyone who knows Frank well, knows of his love for golf, as well as his admiration for legendary pro golfer, Arnold Palmer.  In fact, Frank never misses an opportunity to show off the framed photo that is hanging in his office of himself with Arnold Palmer.  This past summer, Beckie Castello (Accounting) decided she would write a letter to Arnold Palmer requesting a “special recognition” for Frank of an autographed photo and a personal letter.  Remarkably, Arnold Palmer obliged shortly before he passed away.  Frank was amazed at the gesture, and there was barely a dry eye in the house!

“Frank Hooks is a man who does not retire from a challenge or, if he can help it, work.”
