We strive to be a friendly company, courteous and easy to work with. No one at Draper personified these traits more than our receptionist Sharla Massengale. Sharla joined us in 1995 and first worked in the Mail Room. She became our receptionist in 1999.
It is a rare person who is always in a good mood, but Sharla always was. Ever cheerful and absolutely unflappable, she treated each caller and visitor with courtesy and respect.
Sharla was diagnosed in the Spring with an advanced melanoma, and last Monday it took her life. Our hearts go out to her family members as we share their grief.
One of the things Sharla will be remembered for at Draper is her work in helping to organize our annual Relay for Life fundraising effort for the American Cancer Society. Relay for Life is an overnight community fundraising walk, where teams of walkers camp out around a track and share in food and activities. Sharla was one of our team captains on several occasions, and this year she helped the Draper team raise more than $7000 (to read more about this year’s efforts click here).
If you knew Sharla and would like to honor her memory, consider making a donation to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life in her name.
