Cole Emory, MHS Class of 2010 alumnus, was one of several Medline employees honored with a Circle of Excellence Award for his work in the mailroom.  Emory was a special education student at Mechanic's Grove, Carl Sandburg and Mundelein High School.  He is autistic and was a special education student with a one-on-one aide for most of his school years.
The Circle of Excellence Award from Medline, his employer for the last 6 1/2 years, is presented to employees who excel in their areas and usually goes to top salesmen, R & D personnel, or others in visible positions. 

“When his mailroom supervisor called to give me the good news he said it was a very big deal, not just for Cole, but for his entire department (mailroom),” said Karen Emory, Cole’s mother.  This department had never had a recipient of this award.

“I know that each and every one of you has had the pleasure of interacting with him at some point,” said Clay Kalweit, Emory’s supervisor. “You know that he is relentless in finding the person he is looking for as he works his way through his daily route covering every floor in Northfield,” he said. 

“Clay loves all of the people he works with and enjoys coming to Medline each and every day. I am so privileged to ask you to join me in congratulating our Mail Room Clerk, Cole Emory,” Kalweit concluded.
