"As an inventory analyst for Sure Power Industries, Kenny was instrumental in driving improvement initiatives within the planning and inventory functions in the company. He demonstrated great spreadsheet and analysis skills in evaluating opportunities to reduce inventory and increase inventory turns. Kenny has the math skills and the attention to detail that is required to spot anomolies in the data, and then know where to look in the MRP system to track down the errors.”

“This is a letter of recommendation for Kenneth Sawyer, a student at Portland Community College.

Ken has been in a number of my web design classes and I find him to be an engaged and diligent student. He makes connections and explores avenues that other students often do not. He brings a well-rounded background to every class and participates with enthusiasm.I wholeheartedly recommend Ken. Please let me know if you have any questions."

“In the Web design program at PCC, Ken Sawyer demonstrated exceptional skill in planning, designing, developing and completing Web sites and related projects. His maturity, coupled with his creativity and design skills, make him an ideal choice for individuals or companies that need a professional Web designer. Ken is also a team player and he has a very professional demeanor. He will be direct yet tactful -- interpersonal skills that make him well suited to work in a large corporate team or one-on-one with any type of client. I strongly recommend Ken for Web design and related work.”
