Walking Club Mid-Season Update by Jamie Cooper & Erika Meiners
We’ve only participated in one race since the last issue of the Crest Ink came out, but it turned out to be a pretty big deal for our team. As the largest and most competitive event that we run/walk in, we’ve never quite been able to reach that number 1 ranking as a Corporate Challenge Team in the Rea- gan Run 5K in Dixon. I knew we had some fast runners, but I have to admit that we are all a little shocked to learn that our runners had the top time out of all 15 teams competing this year! That’s right, Crest Foods officially holds the title of Reagan Run 5K Corporate Challenge Winner for 2017! Con- gratulations to Mahali Ramirez, Sal Ibarra, Matthias Kemme- ren, Jared Stumpenhorst and Justin Guenther who ran the fastest and won for our team! As a whole, we had 38 employ- ees participate this year on a very mild, and sunny day in July. Unfortunately, the Run to the Castle 5k at Stronghold was cancelled this year, so we are expecting great turnout from

Hope Friday spent 9 weeks as an accounting intern here at Crest. An internship we were sad to see end! While only 2 years into her ac- counting degree, Hope came to us with a good amount of real world experience in both private and public accounting. Throughout her internship Hope was a dedicated team player willing to take on tasks with little direction and kept all assignments on sched- ule. Hope was a big help in both accounts receivable and accounts payable. She was exposed to customer invoices, remote deposits, ven- dor invoices, complex utility bills, payment cycles, payroll taxes, and a hint of corporate assets and small projects. With very little training s- he had no issues handling the volume of work she was asked to tackle. We will miss Hope! We were happy to share our work space, Crest Culture and increase her accounting knowledge that will be helpful to her future goals. We wish Hope the best as she continues her educ- ation at NIU and starts her Accounting career. We would love to see her come back to us some day!
