Accomplishments
I’ve been with Mid-States for 12 years. I started out working on wall panels for about a year, then became foreman of the stripping crew, then moved to foreman of our architectural area. After about seven years of doing that, I became the lead foreman of Wet Cast, which led me into my role now as supervisor.
