“Andrew is recognized by his peers for his maturity and his dependability. I am extremely proud to have had the pleasure of working with him and am as impressed by him now as I was when he was a freshman in high school. Andrew is a leader. Without question, Andrew’s character is of the highest caliber. His outstanding character is the culmination of all of his opportunities, experiences, and decisions. His maturity is obvious. Andrew Baker is the type of achiever who will succeed. I wholeheartedly recommend him.”
Dr. Alicia M. Roy
Superintendent of Schools

“Andrew participated in the Quickcomm summer internship program which was scheduled to be eight weeks June 2, 2012 – July 27, 2012. Due to Andrew’s excellent work ethic he was one of the few interns selected to continue on for the remainder of the summer. His projects were all high visibility and encompassed a very important body of work for our company. Andrew handled them with very limited guidance which demonstrated his leadership abilities and his astute business acumen. The projects included extensive research, acute attention to detail and the ability to work both independently and as part of the team. He completed them on time, utilized his excellent people skills and produced top notch reports. Andrew also independently developed a categorized, disaster recovery template which was implemented throughout the corporation and continues to be utilized as a standard process document for Quickcomm. Andrew is extremely personable, a swift learner and has the ability to think on his feet. It was a pleasure to have him work within our organization. If we had an opportunity to offer Andrew a permanent position we would absolutely hire him. However, due to a hiring freeze, that is not an option, at this time. I can say with complete certainty that if you choose to select Andrew, you will have a very dedicated, conscientious, hard- working individual join your team. Andrew will be a value added to any organization he joins.”

“I have worked with Andrew for a number of years as a volunteer ski patroller. Andrew has continuously impressed me as a highly effective, energetic, and absolutely trustworthy professional. I have seen Andrew repeatedly work in highly stressful situations, maintaining his cool and doing exactly what is needed. He is a great team player, perceiving the needs of the other team members and supporting them intuitively. I wholeheartedly recommend Andrew to employers.”
