Pye-Barker Engineered Solutions - November 2019


121 Royal Drive Forest Park, GA 30297



As hard as it is to believe, Thanksgiving is already upon us. Everyone’s out buying turkeys, but I confess that when I go to the grocery store, I’m heading right for the sweet potatoes. No disrespect to the bird, but Margaret’s sweet potato souffle is just about my favorite dish on this good earth. I’m making sure she has everything she needs to make plenty! Other than my wife’s amazing dessert, there won’t be much cooking happening at our house this year. We’re planning on spending that particular Thursday at my mother’s house, along with two very special guests: Jessica and my grandmother. Now, my grandmother is nothing if not astounding. At 98 years old, she’s still sharp as a tack and is only now beginning to need some physical assistance. She moved in with my mother just this year, but she is still very independent for her age. So it seems like this is the perfect time to hold Thanksgiving at my mother’s house, where we can get four whole generations of our family under one roof! Speaking of independence, Jessica’s first semester of college is going extremely well. It was hard watching her go off to Covenant all by herself, but less than a month in, Margaret and I realized our daughter was really in her element. She’s made plenty of friends, even helping shy students come out of their shells and get involved. Of course, she’s learning a lot from them as well. Many of her classmates come from foreign countries, some as far-flung as India! As someone who’s always seen the importance of diversity, Jessica relishes learning about the cultures and experiences of her new friends. Best of all, she’s managing to do this while staying on top of her studies! It’s hard to ask for more from a freshman during fall semester. We’re also set to be making some new friends here at Pye- Barker. At the time of writing, we have some job offers out and will hopefully have new faces to introduce you to in the coming months! We’ll also continue to grow and make changes as we

move forward into 2020 — we never want to grow complacent. We’re always seeking to be a better partner with the businesses that trust us with their engineering solutions. So I suppose this is just my way of saying how grateful I am for the people in my life. I’m thankful for my wonderful family, their health, and the strides they’ve made this year. I’m proud of our team here at the business and the ways we’ve risen to the challenges of 2019. And last, but certainly not least, I’m grateful to you, our partners, who have grown along with us over the years.

From my family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!
