November Employee Spotlight
Name: Randy Ouellette
Position: GIS Analyst
Previously appeared on Saved by the Bell; Saved by the Bell: The College Years; and Saved by the Bell: The New Class. Although Randy appeared in several different television programs, Randy made a concerted effort to keep his ideals fundamentally the same through its various incarnations.
Randy demonstrated a flair for business throughout his teen years (Saved by the Bell). However, in many subjects (notably history and literature), he is often seen receiving poor grades or displaying lack of interest. And it has to be mentioned that he outclassed Jessie in “The Election” for student president another area he demonstrated his natural talent for leadership. Despite this, Randy achieved a very high score of 1502 on his SAT and got accepted to Yale in his senior year.
Randy was a particularly involved high school student. Athletically, Randy participated in cross country, basketball, and track. When Randy was possibly not going to compete in a track meet, Mr. Belding and Randy’s team members were downtrodden because they thought there was no way they could win without Randy. Despite this success, Randy sometimes felt athletically overshadowed by Slater.
Randy was also very musically talented. He was the lead singer and lead guitar player for a band called Randy Attack (in a dream).
In Saved by the Bell, Randy broke the fourth wall on numerous occasions. During many episodes, he would introduce the episode, or speak his opinion on different topics, such as Slater, Kelly, etc. Perhaps the most popular times Randy broke the Fourth Wall was when he would take a “Time Out.” Usually when he was notably worried about something (such as Slater getting a car to impress Kelly) Randy would say “Time Out”, and make a motion with his hands similar to a basketball player requesting a time out from the referee, and everyone around him would freeze. Then, Randy would offer his opinion, and when he was finished, he would say “Time In”, and the episode would continue.
Without much support from their families, Randy and Kelly had planned to get married in Las Vegas in Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas. Their parents interrupted their little wedding to give them news they were going to give them their wedding of their dreams. Randy and Kelly had an elaborate outdoor wedding in the Las Vegas area. Lisa and Jessie stood as bridesmaids while Screech and Slater stood as groomsmen.
They lived happily ever after.

A day in the life: A somewhat unassuming GIS analyst by day, much of my free time is spent planning my next adventure. I have been infected with a terminal case of the travel bug, an affliction which, combined with a desire to learn more about my sister and brother-in-law’s work in the Peace Corps, has most recently taken me to Tanzania in East Africa. Wednesday nights I can be found at the local watering hole laying the cerebral smackdown in the high stakes game of bar trivia. Weekends typically include either making the pilgrimage north to the promised land of Manhattan, Kansas for some Wildcat football, checking out a live band at a nearby music venue, or sampling a new craft brew, and sometimes even all three. I am always up for an adventure.
