Announcing the 2017 Winter Class

First, we would like to thank all the evaluators who did a tremendous job at making all of this process work:

But above all, I’d like to especially thank Jeremie Granat for:

  • Maintaining the process on schedule even when I was drowning
  • Running all the technical part, coding ways to automatically implement entries from Google Forms into exportable files to make everybody’s life easier and minimizing the risk for mistakes.
  • Keeping me sane 😀

If you would like to know more about the process, its challenges and how we resolved them, we have published a Lessons Learned article.

Congratulations to the new class!

 

Finally, I would like to thank the three now former GP HJs leaving the group this class. They have all chosen to not reapply after years and years of service but aren’t leaving the Judge Program.

Thank you Sean Catanese, Toby Elliott and Jason Lemahieu for your hard work throughout these years!
