Locker Project of the Month

Skyway Elementary
The lockers at Skyway Elementary were installed last month and received rave reviews and immediate use. Staff exclaimed; “We are so grateful for your generosity. The cabinets look like they were part of the school’s original design. The spacing, size and color match other hallway storage units perfectly. Your attention to detail and the quality of your work comes through loud and clear as a strong message of support for the children of our community.”  

Even before the lockers were complete parent volunteers were hard at work finding deals to supply the school with much needed supplies and clothes. Items purchased include coats, snow boots, gloves and hats. As the seasons change (hopefully soon!) parents will continue to scour sales to purchase needed supplies at reasonable prices. Skyway shoppers are committed to be responsible with the generous funds donated by the Coeur Group. 

In addition to the above items, lockers will be stocked with school supplies, bicycle helmets, backpacks, PE shoes in every size, underwear and toiletries. These items are always in need and short supply. Donations of these items are accepted and can be dropped off at the Skyway’s front office during the school day.

The lockers were designed to include space for six lost & found bins that hold items students have left on the playground, bus, gymnasium and cafeteria. This space was utilized immediately and provided an automatic advertisement for the new lockers. During parent-teacher conferences next week, parents will be directed to look through the bins to find items and “admire” the new lockers. 

Skyway Eagles are grateful for the donation and will utilize them for years to come!

What is your current job and tell us a little about what you do? 
I am Senior Project Manager for Clearwater Summit Group. We are a local design build landscape contractor serving Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho doing both commercial and residential construction as well as maintenance. My role in the company is overseeing a group of Project Managers and estimating and overseeing projects mostly in the commercial and public works construction side.
How long have you been a member of The Coeur Group and what is your best experience so far? 
I have been in the Coeur Group since early 2016. I’ve been involved in a couple locker builds which have been very rewarding experiences but I thoroughly enjoy every time I get together with this group of guys whether it’s for a volunteer opportunity, a monthly meeting, or just grabbing a beer.
What's your favorite moment of your career to this point?
I would have to say just being a part of Clearwater Summit Group for the past 10 years has been the most rewarding part of my professional life. We have some really great and talented people and it seems like I get to do be a part of something new and more challenging just about every day. It’s always very rewarding to see a project on a piece of paper, scheme on the methods and costs to build it, watch it take shape from nothing, then stand and look at the finished product.  
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Just about any spare time I might have is taken up by my 4 and 8 year old boys and telling them what I am going to take away if they don’t start listening. Wouldn’t change it for anything. Whenever I can I do like to hit some golf balls opposite of where I am aiming and snowboarding in the winter. My boys are starting to get the point that they can participate and are getting more involved in baseball, basketball and football which has been a lot of fun.
Why would you recommend The Coeur Group to a colleague?
It is quite possibly the best group of guys I have been around. We are all extremely busy and professional minded and yet we are all taking time out of lives to not only build a network of friends and business opportunities but to first and foremost do the most good in this community that we can. I feel very blessed to be a part of the Coeur Group and would recommend it to anyone. It also helps that we all like to have fun while we are doing some good.
