28 Heartfelt Thank Yous from the Team at Presence

The temperature at Presence’s St. Petersburg, FL HQ is dropping into the brisk mid-60s.

That’s pretty cold for Florida, okay? But even with this frigid weather, it’s pretty easy to stay warm. That’s because it’s the time of year when our entire team gets sentimental about what they’re thankful for.

As a company, we’ve grown exponentially since last year. We’ve had our share of highs and lows, and through all of that, we’ve continued to deliver cutting-edge engagement solutions to higher education institutions across the globe.

That wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing support of all of our campus partners. We want to say a very special “thank you” to those of you who are partnered up with us. You rock! We wish we could be sitting around a literal Thanksgiving table with you this year, but we can’t. So we’re putting this post out into the world as an internet-based Thanksgiving table, and we asked our team to share what they were thankful for this year.
