ONYX Graduates

For those who helped found this organization in 2009, it was often a running joke to think about who would “age out” first.  As the group continued to grow and the years passed, we quickly realized that some of our closest friends and colleagues would soon be exceeding the 22-40 threshold established for membership.

It is with great pride that we recognize those who have represented ONYX and since “graduated” to bigger and better things:

•  Jason Cavanaugh
•  Jeff Cook
•  Angelo Flamingo
•  Robb Hasty
•  Kara O’Mahoney
•  Doug Patterson
•  David Rabideau
•  Matt Skelly
•  Megan Skelly
•  Tracy Steffen
•  Suzanne Underwood
