Myron E. Thompson

Mr. Thompson was the best boss I have ever had in my life! I overheard him talking to the personnel manager at the Arkansas Public Service Commission, trying to get me a raise - before I ever started working for him. Once a year, when he did our performance evaluations, he told us that he was closing and locking his office door, and that we should leave him alone because he was doing the most important thing he did all year long. He said: "All year long, you guys do things for me; once a year I get to do something for you!". He would remember good things I had done that I had completely forgotten. There is a lot more I could write about him; I tell people about him and repeat some of his stories over and over.
