Native American Intern
One of our members has welcomed an intern, Cody Davis, a member of the Kickapoo tribe. Larry Reynolds, Reynolds Electric, has offered an opportunity for Cody to shadow job estimating personnel where he is learning "on line takeoff ". This system is state of the art and allows the estimator to receive the blueprints digitally and project them on a large screen for bidding purposes. Also, Cody is being allowed to sit in on meetings with outside electrical engineers, as well as spending time with some of Reynolds Electric partners.
Cody is an electrical engineering student at ITT Technical Institute, Overland Park. He says, "I'm very grateful for this opportunity".
