Team Alpha braved the elements last Saturday for the Form Follows Fitness 5K, benefiting the Dallas Center for Architecture! Even with the less than ideal conditions, it was a great event, with a course that took us past some of the best architecture in Dallas. Thanks to everyone who came by our booth (manned by Jacob Wadlington), and congrats to Junior Hernandez, Hannah McAdams, Allison Merecka, and Marianne Stanton for battling through the rain to get those awesome medals! Want to see more pics from the race? Check out https://www.facebook.com/FormFollowsFitness/. Can’t wait to do it again next year!
Ever wonder how handwritten field reports turn into typed masterpieces? Behind the scenes, Alpha’s typists convert those reports to legible, typed documents for project managers to review. In record-setting fashion, Alpha’s Tiana Blackmon typed her 10,000th report in January, completing the feat in less than 8 months! That’s about 60-70 reports a day!
Tiana joined Alpha in May 2017, and has a Master of Science degree in Agricultural and Natural Resources Science from Tarleton State University. She hopes to use her degree to pursue research and community research opportunities.
If typing was an Olympic sport, Tiana would definitely bring home the gold! We’re glad to have her on our team!

What’s better than getting out of the office for a few hours for a meeting? Getting free Frosters when you get there! Alpha’s Philip Johnson, Adam Heiman, and Courtney Ball recently visited Circle K at their San Antonio office and were greeted by a built in (complimentary) convenience store! This has us all asking, what’s your favorite Froster flavor?
