Sparck Story

I was working full time while trying to earn my college degree.  It was very stressful at times, particularly when I was studying for exams.  I put every ounce of effort I had into both my work and my education and at the end of the day, I was exhausted.  One day, I was called into my manager’s office.  I didn’t know why and was a bit nervous.  Instead, she asked how I was doing with everything and if there was anything the company could do to make things a bit easier during exam time.  She was genuinely interested in how things were going, asked me a lot of questions about school and even gave me extra PTO to study.  I felt like I had a real champion in my corner, and it meant so much.  When I walked across the stage at graduation, she was there cheering me on.  I couldn’t believe she took time out of her schedule to be there for something so important to me.
