EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH NOVEMBER


NICOLE FLORES VOTED HOUSTON NOVEMBER EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH!


Nicole is a repeat offender. :) She was our employee of the month in June of 2021.


Nicole Flores

Nicole worked out of the Grand Prairie office and then transferred down to Houston. After working as a lead technician, she interviewed for an open Project Superintendent position. She has been a PS for a few years.


Nicole studied to be an A&P (airframe and powerplant mechanic). She uses that skill set to take an organized approach to her work.


Nicole is in the middle of a move to Harker Heights Texas and will be leaving us soon. Good Luck in Central Texas Nicole!


Comments from her coworkers

  • "Congratulations!"

  • "Hard worker, good trainer."

  • "Sad to see her go."

  • "Great mentor."


THE FUN STUFF

Nicole will receive a gift set from behind door #3 in Ron’s office and we will add her name to the plaque in the front lobby alongside the other 2022 Employees of the Month.


Finally, Nicole will receive a limited-edition Employee of the Month commemorative custom coin designed by our own Cliff Switzer.

SHOUT-OUT

I would like to give a personal shout-out to Jeovanny Alvarenga, Justo Garza, and Jaime Pena - These gentlemen have volunteered to assist me (Ron Kruse) with a run-through of a DC switching lab on 11/29 in preparation for a lab on 11/30/22 with Carlos Melo, Cris Ortega, David Martinez, and Ernie Chavez. I know you are very busy and it is not always easy to carve out an hour. I lost all of my previous lab notes and have to rebuild the labs and found myself in a pinch to do a real test of the labs. One Team.


This lab we are working on will be part of the Lone Star Technical Institute series with more and different Learning Lab opportunities to follow. This is a relaxed atmosphere where we can wire up a basic circuits and follow the signal flow using our toolset.


Shout out to Alyssa Garza for refitting and inventorying the Learning Lab electronic kits. A great help.
