Bouquet from radio station surprises Tonganoxie secretary

May 4, 2005

Diana Jacobs is a terrific secretary.

If she didn't know it before, she knows it now.

Last Wednesday, when she arrived at work at Reece Nichols' Tonganoxie office, Realtor Dan Lynch told her to listen to the radio, in particular, the station Z95.7-FM.

That's because Shannon Theno, a real estate agent in her office, sent an e-mail to the radio station as part of its Secretary's Day promotion. Theno said the e-mail was actually from everyone who works in the Tonganoxie Reece Nichols office.

"I guess there were over 100 e-mails sent in," Jacobs said. "They picked five women. I was one of the five. I was really excited -- it was nice of Shannon to do that."

For being selected as a terrific secretary, Jacobs, who has worked at Reece Nichols for two years, received a bouquet of flowers from the radio station.

Shannon said Jacobs deserved to be honored.

"I love Diana," Shannon said in a telephone interview Thursday. "She's a real sweetheart who will bend over backward to help you. She puts other people first before she helps herself -- she's one in a million."

Shannon learned the radio station had selected Jacobs as one of the winners after she arrived at her other job at Cabela's.

"I had a voice mail from Scottie at Z95.7," Shannon said, smiling. "And he said, hey we like your letter, we're going to send flowers to Diana."
