Brendan Punsky is an IT Hero and the Partnership’s May Volunteer of the Month
Brendan Punsky is the Partnership for Successful Living’s Volunteer of the Month for May!! Congratulations! How many have us have left the IT department asking, “Was that English, or just Techie?”  Who actually understands what they’re talking about? Brendan Punsky does.
