|Ed Roll Paying tunes|
POPLAR BLUFF, MO- Schultz and Summers Engineering is pleased to announce the January employee of the month was Ed Roll from the Poplar Bluff office. Owner Bob Summers said, “Ed has been a solid performer in our company for a long time. He is a top performer who saves our customers time and money.”
Ed will be celebrating his 8th anniversary with SSE in September. As party chief of a survey crew he is responsible for going out to the job site and marking the appropriate lines while gathering all the necessary data for the engineers to design a project with. Summers added, “Ed is a big reason so many businesses in Southeast Missouri call us for their surveying and engineering needs. He does things right the first time. He makes less trips to the field and gets more done while he is there than most surveyors. His accurate work not only saves time but it also makes our design work easier and precise.”
Ed lives in Puxico, Missouri. Before joining SSE he worked at Gates Rubber Company in Poplar Bluff. SSE Survey department manager Grady Robinett said, “Having Ed as a party chief makes my job alot easier. I can send him out on any job and never worry if he can handle it. He is smart, experienced and always gets the job done!”
Ed is an accomplished musician and plays lead guitar, bass guitar, and keyboards in a local rock and roll band. When asked what he liked best about working at SSE he said, “I love the outdoors. I started my career as a surveyor before working at Gates, but I found I missed the outdoors and surveying. There is nothing like surveying a roadway, power line or commercial site. It’s fun to survey a tract of barren land and then see something useful built on it all based on the surveying we did before anything was built.”
In honor of Ed being awarded January employee of the month SSE will donate $100 on his behalf to the Shriners Hospitals for Children. St. Louis Shriners hospital delivers the highest quality of care to children with a host of orthopedic and neuromusculoskeletal disorders and diseases. Ed has several family members who were Shriners and wanted to support their efforts to help children.
“Ed has worked on some very important projects in Missouri. He staked Highways 67, 13, and 5, as well as major power lines across Southern Missouri for Show-Me-Power. He is an experienced surveyor and we are very fortunate to have him on the SSE team,” concluded owner Stan Schultz.
