His work with our instructors over the past months has been an important aspect of our progress.”
Baudoux is survived by his wife Mary, son Leon, and daughter Kimberly. Funeral services are pending.
Edelen has appointed Jeff Peevy, director of field operations, and Todd Hank, network support administrator to oversee Baudoux’s responsibilities until further notice.
