Penni Williams Celebrates 10 years with Best Buy – NDEAM Spotlight

Did you know October is not just #DownSyndromeAwarenessMonth but also #NationalDisabilityEmploymentAwarenessMonth! We want to celebrate Penni Williams for 10 years of service at  – Way to go Penni!

“Penni works with Tiffany Smith and James Baxter in the Parts Department, and she just celebrated her ten-year anniversary with us. Penni came to me and expressed that she really wanted a BLUE shirt for her anniversary. (Our annual replenishment shirts are Geek Squad black.) I was putting in a personal order at the time and ordered a blue shirt for her as a surprise to celebrate her huge milestone with us.  I tell you this not because I bought her a shirt, but I wanted to share how excited she was when she received her new BLUE shirt. She immediately went to the restroom and changed into it!! She didn’t even want to wait for her next shift!  She is Best Buy Proud! Thank you Penni for all of your hard work, always wanting to be here, and wearing that sweet smile on your face. Congratulations! We are so proud of you and happy you are here.” – Lisa Asher
