He started as a groundskeeper and worked his way up to assistant superintendent and waste diversion manager, and he also serves as the chair of the Staff Association. He has spent his career giving back to his colleagues, the university and the community, which is one of the many reasons he received the Exemplary Staff Employee of the Year Award in 2006. In this interview, he talks about his volunteer work, his involvement on campus and how it felt to be chosen as the staff speaker at the Founders' Day celebration in November.
