Cory Brown is January Employee Of The Month
POPLAR BLUFF, MO- Schultz and Summers Engineering is pleased to announce the January employee of the month was Cory Brown from the New Orleans office. Owner Stan Schultz said, “It is always hard to pick an employee of the month because we have so many talented and hardworking individuals at SSE but Cory helped make the first quarter of 2011 one of the most successful in our company’s history.”
January employee of the month Cory Brown has only been with SSE since last November and in a very short time he has become a very important part of our New Orleans operation. Supervisor Jeff Hudgens added, “The weather in New Orleans makes scheduling our employees very difficult. I love having Cory on board with us because no matter what or when we need him he is always there. His work on the Archer Western Contractors job has been outstanding!”
Cory was born and raised in the NOLA area and worked in the construction business for 12 years before joining SSE last November. He is a hard charging single 25 year old graduate of Louisiana State University. When asked what he most likes most about working at SSE he replied, “I like the variety. I like being in the field and working with the soil and concrete, but I also like dealing with the numbers and helping think about what is really going on with my project. I received a minor in statistics so I love the numbers part of engineering these levy projects.”
In honor of Cory being awarded January employee of the month SSE will donate $100 on his behalf to the Brees Dream Foundation. Since its inception, the Brees Dream Foundation has committed and/or contributed more than $6,000,000 to charitable causes and academic institutions in the New Orleans, San Diego and West Lafayette/Purdue communities.
“Cory has shown the willingness to go wherever we need him and do whatever it takes to keep our customers happy. His work ethic and attitude is the main reason our company was recognized as one of the fastest growing business in America last year,” concluded owner Bob Summers.
