I have been with Mid-States for 9 years and am proud that we are achieving world class quality and safety at Mid-States.  I am an active member on various PCI Committees, serving as Chairman of the Vendor QA Committee, Vice Chairman for PCI Safety Committee, Plant Certification Committee, and Personal Training.  I hold various safety and quality certifications along with an associate’s degree in criminal law and bachelor of science in business.  My greatest blessing and accomplishment is my family.  I have an amazing wife and four great children.  Two graduated from college, one a junior in college and one still at home.  All (the kids) have given me grey hair.
