Document Transcribers

Sandy Nagel - 131 pages!!!!
Sandra is our superstar document transcriber for the month!  Here a few words Sandy's friend Pat Michaels had to say about her:

     "I want to introduce you to Sandy Nagle, a wonderful woman whom I've had the privilege of knowing as a friend and neighbor for about 12 years.  When I was asked to get her a bio, she modestly said there was nothing special she could say about herself.  She finally agreed to allow me to write it.

     Our sons, Chris and Jeff, attended the same schools and were in scouts together.  In her roles as cub scout den mother and boy scout leader, Sandy brought enthusiasm, organizational skills and a caring spirit to the tasks at hand.  Her infectious laugh, motherly qualities (and chocolate brownies) made her very popular with the boys.  The other leaders recognized her as a stalwart and trooper for meticulously maintaining the individual records of all the  boys' progress toward achieving their ranks and merit badges. 

    So, when I called Sandy to ask her to transcribe for "It's Our Story," it was no surprise that she agreed to do it.  And she did a whopping 131 pages to boot!"
