Melissa Dyer,  one of our Purchasing Agents was chosen by Jimmy Guseman, from the warehouse, to receive the warrior helmet next, calling out the teamwork that she showcases every day.

This is truly an amazing Christmas gift for Melissa, who is a die-hard Penguin’s fan and loves work just as much! She even used the helmet for the Elf on the Shelf for her kids!

Fun Fact:

 Melissa is a HUGE hockey fan and her love for hockey was a large part in how our Penguins Engagement Partnership began.
