The Moody-Valdosta Post has been active again for more than a year and has gained a lot of momentum thanks to the hard work of many, including two Semper Tek, Inc. (STI) employees. Mr. Santiago Iturralde, SE Division VP for STI, has served in 2018-2019 as the Post Vice President and was an integral figure in helping to re-launch the Post which had been inactive for many years. Additionally, Mrs. Camille Lewis, IT and Process Improvement Manager for STI, has served the Post in the past year as an administrator and program coordinator.  On Monday, July 15 the SAME Moody-Valdosta Post took a moment to recognize the work of the 2018-2019 Board, as well recognize Camille for her leadership before installing their new Board of Directors during their monthly membership meeting.  Lt Col Francis, 2018-2019 Post President showed his appreciation for their hard work on behalf of the Post by presenting them each New Challenge Coinwith a SAME Post coin.
