LMC Signs New Team Members During Ceremony at Early County High School

There is a great deal of fanfare which revolves around college athletes making known their commitment to professional teams. Not to diminish their many years of hard work and dedication but they shouldn’t be the only ones we celebrate when students enter the workforce.

“The real stars,” according to Tim Spooner, one of the instructors at Early County High School, “are the ones who can turn the lights on when the power goes out.” We could not agree with him more and this is a major reason why LMC would like to welcome two new members to our team, Amber Craft and Brandon Cook, as part of Early County High School’s first ever signing ceremony.

These two high school seniors with a passion for welding focused on LMC as their first breach into what could become a lifelong career with limitless possibilities.

Prior to the signing ceremony both Ms. Craft and Mr. Cook actually visited the LMC facility to see what it would be like to work as a welder in a professional setting. Stan Kennedy, Parts and Service Manager, was able to walk them through the process, and following the orientation, they were even given our standard welding test, which they passed with flying colors.

It’s not often we get to celebrate the youth of today, especially during a pandemic of all times. So, we would like share our gratitude to their parents, their instructor Espy Smith, Dr. Shanice Richards (Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education Director) and all the faculty and staff at Early County High School for their efforts in bringing up great students which we hope can continue their trajectory of success with LMC!

LMC Hosts Representatives from Southern Regional Technical College: Bainbridge Campus

Relationships are important to foster growth regardless of the business. That said, LMC was grateful to welcome Susanne Reynolds, Amy Carter, and Marvin Bannister, representatives from Southern Regional Technical College: Bainbridge Campus.

As we all look forward to a post-Covid future, we still need to address the needs of today which include asking the tough questions of where the top talent will come from to help fill positions at LMC.

There are many challenges, both seen and unseen. With the help of SRTC, we hope to tackle them head-on with the right foresight and planning.

Marcus Carter (CEO), Stan Kennedy (Manager, Parts and Service), Buck Jones (Manager, Sales Engineering and Production), and Thomas Fye (Manager, Machine Shop) were all able to share their stories and backgrounds to help shed some light on the issues LMC is facing.

After a brief tour of the facility, plans were made for LMC to visit the SRTC campus in Bainbridge to determine how to best mesh LMC’s capabilities with SRTC’s.

The future is bright with opportunities. Luckily, we have plenty of welding hoods at the ready for the best, hard-working people!

LMC Hosts Students from Seminole County Middle High School

LMC Hosts Students from Seminole County Middle High School

Every single day is a blessing and today was no exception when LMC was able to host a small group of students from Seminole County Middle High School. It was a blessing because 2021 is a new year to carry on with the best parts of last year which included a shared opportunity with our local community to promote a promising future to our young adults. The group today was the first of the year and they included students from SCMHS welding class chaperoned by Dusty Smith, Cindy Bryant, and the school’s principal, Shane Purdy, who were all able to see firsthand some of LMC’s inner workings.

LMC’s Parts and Service Manager, Stan Kennedy, led the group around the different parts of the facility but this was also part of a process to initiate the students to a real world experience and what they could do upon completion of their high school education. Following the orientation, the students were then offered the opportunity to try their hand at an LMC welding test. It speaks well to their instructor, Mr. Smith, that they all did well enough on their tests to be considered for employment with LMC if they so desired welding positions.

Shortly afterwards, the group returned to the Agricultural facility on the SCMHS campus for lunch and a brief instructional video about LMC’s turnkey shelling facility, Premium Peanut located in Douglas, Georgia followed by a question and answer session.

As a major manufacturer in Georgia, LMC has a vested interest to nurture these kinds of relationships, especially with students curious and eager to know what lies ahead, because their future and success is just as much our own. We would like to thank them for the opportunity to share what we have to offer and look forward to seeing them again!
