Deb Cygan, Senior Support Secretary
I love to vacation anywhere there is sun and sand but there has to be a casino nearby! Football is my favorite sport; not to play….just to watch.
Scampi-style scallops are my all time favorite food, but I’ll eat them anyway.
Yes, I have a celebrity crush – it’s ELVIS!!!! His voice is just incredible.
I guess I’d have to say that the United States military personnel are my heroes. It is because of their sacrifices that we are able to enjoy freedom.
My favorite music group, performer: I’m all ELVIS but do enjoy Maroon 5 (Adam Levine!!!!). My favorite movie is “Gone with the Wind.”
