All of my days here at Williams Company are good days. When it comes to great days, these come in different varieties. At the top of the great day list are the ones that a client sincerely, and deliberately tells me that our team is doing an awesome job for them! These are my best days here at Williams Company!
And so it was last Friday at Sickles High School in Hillsborough County. The Superintendent of Hillsborough County Public Schools, Jeff Eakins, was at Sickles High School to speak to the media about the state of the school district as we begin the 2019-20 year. All of the local television stations were there along with reporters from the Tampa Bay Times (the best newspaper in Florida).
Superintendent Eakins brought Luke and Mark up to thank them, and also allowed them to speak about the importance of this project to our company. The Principal and Assistant Principal also praised our team for our incredible progress. Everyone was thrilled with the work we have completed!
Superintendent Eakins had at least 15 different schools he could have presented from, but he picked Sickles. Why? ... because out of all the school work in Hillsborough County that has come from the half penny sales tax referendum passed last November, our school project has come the furthest!
This did not happen by accident. Dirk, Tony, Luke, Mark, Nolan, Bill and Melanie worked their tails off on the front end of this very aggressive schedule. The team has been working 7 days a week, around the clock this summer. Early on they worked closely with the design team to get information about the long lead items. They used multiple subs on some trades, and most importantly they were able to get the chiller ordered, delivered and installed over the summer!
The event last Friday was a public relations homerun for the Williams Company!
Great job and well deserved praise for Team Tampa!
