A FINAL THOUGHT FROM THE CEO
“My grandfather died a very successful man with a 6th grade education from a 1 room school house in Glen Flora, Texas. He did not know algebra, chemistry or physics, but what he did know is how to Work Harder and Work Smarter than anyone I have ever known. He used to tell me as a kid that "Common Sense and Hard Work will take you as far in this world as you want to go". Well, its not quite that simple anymore, but that principle has served as a defining theme throughout my life. Thank God for men like my grandfather!
