Mark Kestel (Engineering), Greg Shriver (Surveying), and Chris Morrow (Planning) celebrated their 20th anniversaries at Project Design Consultants this Spring. The three were honored at a company lunch that featured Hawaiian BBQ and an abundance of tasty cupcakes as well as some interesting stories. The three also received a very nice local photograph from Aaron Chang in recognition of their committment to PDC. Congratulations to all!
