"Dear BSPC Team Member:
1996 was one ofthe most important years ever in the history of our payphone
services business unit. it was the year that BSPC team members, along with many
thousand other BellSouth employees, hosted the world for the Centennial Olympic
Games in Atlanta. BellSouth showed our visitors -- and our customers what a world»

prominent in that success story.
1996 was also the year that the entire BSPC team accomplished tremendous

displaying it on a plaque or in a shadowbox, making it into a clock. A
