                                          Next month, we complete transitioning the national laboratory to Battelle Savannah River
                                          Alliance, something for which we have been preparing for some time. However, this will not

                                          SRNS employees again showed their compassion and giving spirit. Site Services employee
                                          Jermaine Patterson recently partnered with SRNS to restore his childhood sports park in
                                          New Ellenton, South Carolina. SRNS also raised over $30,000 during Celebrity Waiter Night,
                                          a fundraiser for the Children’s Place, Inc.; awarded grants to 78 local educators as part of
                                          the Innovative Teaching Mini Grants Program; and donated $40,000 to the Child Advocacy
                                          Center of Aiken County.
                                          As we mark a new era at SRS, I sincerely appreciate the leadership of Dr. Vahid Majidi and
                                          Sharon Marra over the past few years and the professionalism and hard work of the SRNS
                                          and SRNL employees who have worked collaboratively to ensure a successful transition.
                                          I look forward to continuing to work with SRNL as we deliver on our important shared
                                          missions for the Department of Energy.
