MVP(s) of the Week: Reed d’Rulz & Tenacious D Cup

These two Rat City officials recently achieved Founder Status in their league, which they were granted after each reached 1,000 hours of service to the organization! That is HUGE and amazing and I wanted to make sure we got another chance to celebrate them and their work! If you know them IRL, give them a high-five for me!!
