“From your partnership during construction to your work with Horizon after its completion, you and your staff have demonstrated service a mentality that is hard to find in today’s world. Questions have been promptly answered and the few concerns raised, quickly handled. Your staff has continued this partnership and our school is enriched because of it.”
