I did as I always do on such occasions, dutifully forwarding the messages to our friends in Technology Services so that they could do whatever it is they do. Then I stopped to realize the extent to which I take these staff members for granted. Each day they perform hundreds of tasks to maintain our systems, fix our computers and answer my inept questions—and they do it all with competence and grace.
The world is better because of Samford’s dedicated employees in Technology Services, who always answer “yes” when asked if they are available!
