Melinda Gonzales, director of development, was honored in late February by Modern Woodsmen, a fraternal financial organization, for her professionalism and outstanding customer service. The organization, which donated trees to the Saratoga campus last year and will again this year, celebrated Gonzales at a dinner and presented her with a certificate as part of their Hometown Heroes program. Allen Phillips, regional director, and his wife, Aleda, presented the certificate to Gonzales to recognize her accomplishments and show appreciation for her contribution to the community. The organization included a donation to Harker, as well.
