Kelvin, I wanted to let you know that I received the TRIO stylus pens and they look great!
— Scott Scott Robertson, Director Student Support Services West Virginia University Institute of Technology
Kim, WE RECEIVED ALL ORDERS TODAY!! What a wonderful surprise to get the shirts and cinch bags both today. You don’t know how much of a difference that is making for our team. This will positively impact everything we are doing and will assist us in ensuring we have a successful, seamless event. Based on your outstanding customer service and support, I am recommending to our accounting and purchasing department that Proforma Green Marketing be listed as the preferred vendor for branded materials for our parent company (R.T. Fisher and Associates) and all of its divisions, including the non-profit – Choose College Educational Foundation. Placing an order with you would be priority before seeking out other companies. I hope this leads to a great on-going partnership. Thank you once again for everything. We greatly appreciate your support.

Your professionalism and non-pressure approach assured me that I made the right choice with not only the product, but also the company that we went with.

I will definitely return to you for future orders, as well as, recommend your services to our colleagues throughout the TRIO world. It was a pleasure working with you!

On behalf of the AEEE Fun Run Committee, I would like to thank John for working so hard to ensure that our duffle bags arrived on time for our conference in Puerto Rico this year. John and the Proforma team ensured that we were satisfied with the bags, which helped to make our scholarship drive a big success. I am simply amazed at the variety of products offered by Proforma at reasonable prices. Our students love our Proforma TRIO products and they carry the TRIO logo with pride!

I recently placed an order, and I just wanted to say “THANK YOU” for providing excellent customer service and extremely expedient processing regarding my order from start to finish. Please know that your personalized customer service and hospitality were profoundly appreciated. You took the time to go the extra mile for me and that certainly did not go unnoticed. Your patience and kindness were extraordinary. Thank you for making this purchasing experience an exceptional one.

In this day and age good customer service is sometimes difficult to find, and I feel it is important that it be recognized. Working with you has been a pleasure. Indeed. You personify excellent customer service. You have been remarkable, your assistance, your promptness, and the accuracy of everything you did in processing my order were brilliant!

Please know that my staff and I were thoroughly delighted with the three items purchased. The plastic coffee mugs, color wave notebooks, and renegade flashlights were a phenomenal success. Needless to say, they went like hotcakes and our students were very pleased with the items since they were of such high quality.

I happily look forward to working with you again in the future and intend to recommend your services to my TRIO colleagues.
— Eleanor Lynn Martin Director of Educational Opportunity Center MSU-Northern
Thank you very much for your assistance with all the items (academic planners, table throw, door entry rugs, and string backpacks) I recently purchased. Your experience and knowledge of the product made it easy to decide what to order. You and your team were very accommodating to the needs of our program and the suggestions you made were right on target. Everything arrived on time and with no difficulty. I’ve included a picture below of some of the items we’ve purchased.

Staff have been planning their activities for the new school year and are very excited about using the new bright green table throws at our target schools as well as at community events. TRiO ETS will definitely receive some attention and recognition. Our ETS students are really going to like the bright string backpacks and academic planners. The planners will be a great tool for everyone (8th – 12 grades). Not only does the planner have a grade keeper and class schedule, but also math formulas. periodic table, commonly misspelled words, and U.S. & Canada capitals. In addition, it also has study tips (taking class notes and time management).

Thank you again, and I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
— Peggy Marlow, M. Ed. Director for TRiO Educational Talent Search & TRiO Adult Educational Services
I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for Kelvin Thomas. I have had the distinct pleasure of working professionally with Kelvin since we met at the Council for Opportunity in Education Conference in 2006. He is resourceful, motivated, and a self-starter. I seldom meet anyone who is as competent as Kelvin.

As a state government employee, who also sits on executive and planning committees of various organizations, part of my responsibilities include ordering promotional items to be used as giveaways or given as gifts at trade shows, conferences, college fairs, etc. Being a government employee, I have a budget that I have to stay within, which in and of itself, is a challenge in today’s economy. But the biggest challenge that I face is the time it takes for requests to get through our approval process. Kelvin understands my circumstances and it doesn’t matter if I get the approval a few weeks before I need the merchandise, Kelvin ALWAYS comes through! From the moment I let him know that it’s approved, he will have everything processed within hours and have my order to the vendor. The orders are always right, the process is smooth and the products are exactly what I wanted.

We have all heard the term…….. “Putting 110% of yourself ” …… into your job. In Kelvin’s case it’s 150% or more. I don’t think the word “can’t” is in his vocabulary. Kelvin is strictly a “can-do” person.

The Upward Bound Program recently purchased door mats from Proforma. Each staff member also purchased polo shirts with the Trio Upward Bound logo. I highly recommend this company. They have fast, friendly, quality, and professional service! The mats look great! Thanks!
— Tamekia P. Wiggins Director of Upward Bound/Monroeville Campus Alabama Southern Community College
Working with John and Kelvin from Proforma was wonderful. The presence of the Proforma TRIO store provided a unique element to our conference. The store gave our small three state conference the feel of a larger regional conference. I would also like to say that the Proforma team really understands the needs of the TRIO community and works hard to ensure that TRIO programs have the latest promotional items at budget friendly prices.
— T. Chris George Director, WKU Student Support Services
Mr. Simonetta, on behalf of the KNCT-3 conference, I would like to thank you and the PROforma team for your generous support of TRiO programs and our Inaugural KNCT-3 conference. With your assistance and support of TRiO programs the conference was a success. Conference attendees enjoyed talking to you and receiving information regarding services PROforma can provide. Your staff was supportive, courteous, and professional.

We know that you have many organizations to consider when choosing where to exhibit each year, and KNCT-3 is truly honored to have been selected. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you in the future, and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with PROforma. Thank you again for your participation and your support of TRiO programs.
— Sincerely, Sharonda Steele KAEOPP Conference Chair KNCT-3 Conference Co-Chair
