SRT Technicians Receive Minot Chamber EDC Eagle Award

Matt and Cameron and Matt were nominated by an SRT customer who said, “Matt and Cameron hooked up our fiber optic cable. We have two big dogs and they had to be in their business while they were working and being a nuisance. Matt and Cameron took the time to acknowledge them. They were so professional and kind. They quickly hooked up our fiber optic and I had a question on my SRT email app. They not only took the time to help me but also took the time to look into the problem and not once made me feel like I was losing my mind. I hope SRT realizes what a gem they have. Thank you VERY much for your time and patience. We as a customer are very lucky to have you.”
