My Resignation Letter

To All:

It is my intention to resign from my position, effective January 14, 2005, to resume my education. I deeply regret the short notice of this resignation. I thank you for your understanding.

During an election, politicians like to use Ronald Reagan's old line, "Are you better off now than you were four years ago?"

My answer would be yes.

When I first started working for California Savings, my life was far less fulfilling and rewarding. My personal view of myself, today, is much more positive to the point that I can safely explore bold moves in my life.

I owe much to Linda Foss at the Montclair branch for steering me to the main office. To John Lehman for being, by far, the best boss I have ever worked under. From him, I will always value the notion that integrity, discipline, loyalty and good humor can, indeed, co-exist in the workplace. I also reserve thanks to Susan Mationg for being a strong and wise hand in convincing some doubters of my ability.

To all my co-workers, I would like to thank you all for your friendship and sincerely wish you good luck in your future endeavors. How can I forget to thank Jerry Armstrong? For nearly two years, Jerry Armstrong has delivered me a donut and the morning's newspaper. You might say he has expanded my depth of knowledge and my waistline.

Thank you,

Steven Tavares
