“Most of all, Matt has shown a unique ability to lead others. His maturity, honesty and hard work have impressed both me and his fellow staff. He has the ability to inspire and lead others while maintaining a solid grip on reality. While he clearly provides positive leadership, he understands when things need fixing and is not afraid to provide good constructive criticism when needed.”
