For a while there, it seemed like heavy storms were a certainty – just one of the unavoidable risks of having an event in July

Luckily, though, the rain held out yesterday for the 2nd Annual Mizzou Sports Properties Golf Invitational, presented by Socket. Even the usual heat wave was missing, with the temperature hovering around a balmy 80 degrees.

We always love having Pepe's over for lunch at our Columbia office... although the delicious smells can make it difficult to concentrate!

Congratulations to Internal Auditor Sungwook Kim for being named the July recipient of Socket's You-Make the-Difference Award!

Sungwook is originally from Pusan, a port city on the southeastern part of South Korea.  He moved here nine years ago and began working for Socket in October 2010.  Sung received several nominations and votes from his co-workers this month.  “Sung is a great asset for Socket,” says a fellow employee. “He comes in early and stays late. He is diligent and thorough. Sung definitely deserves this award.”

When asked for his impression of Missouri, Sung replied that he loves this state.  Although he grew up as a city dweller, Sung has learned that he really enjoys Missouri’s beautiful outdoors.
