FedEx Recognizes Paralegal Who Went Above and Beyond Call of Duty

Great paralegals, legal assistants, legal secretaries, and many other legal staffers go above and beyond the call of duty every day, solving problems as they arise and providing excellent customer service to their employers' clients, so it is nice to see FedEx in Memphis, Tennessee recognize 26 of its employees that have not only done a good job, but did way more than they had to, including senior paralegal Cynthia Fitzsimmons.

Purple Promise awards went to 11 employees for going above and beyond their duties to fulfill the company's pledge to make every FedEx experience outstanding.

Other Memphis-area employees receiving awards were Cynthia Fitzsimmons, a senior paralegal, who received a Purple Promise award for solving a customer's shipping problem at a national conference; and Debbie Stephens, senior human resources development specialist, recipient of a Humanitarian Award for supporting cancer patients.
I did a quick Google search and found what I believe is Fitzsimmons' blog, Silly Little Cynthia. I'm pretty sure I got it right, because it says she lives in Memphis, is a paralegal and loves her job at FedEx.

Her April 8, 2010 blog post, "An Attitude of Gratitude," says a lot about why Fitzsimmons is the kind of paralegal that goes above and beyond the call of duty. She writes:

I can get out of bed angry because I have to go to work or I can choose to be grateful for the job I have waiting for me. How you choose to look at this decision is also a choice. You can view life with either an optimistic or a pessimistic approach. It’s your call.

In another post, Fitzsimmons writes that she's grateful "to have a good company to work for and managers that care about our needs and concerns." I don't think Fitzsimmons is silly at all; she seems like the kind of person that gets up determined to bring a positive attitude to whatever challenges her day brings.

With a great attitude like hers, that's no doubt that Fitzsimmons is exactly the kind of person who will go the extra mile to help a client. Practical Paralegalism congratulates her for receiving a Purple Promise award in recognition of her outstanding service and commitment to her profession.
