Williams recently celebrated the 50th work anniversary of its longest-tenured employee.
Jack Crowder, a senior operations technician, has worked for Williams since May 1, 1969.
Jack works out of Station 160 in Reidsville, N.C. He’s been there most of his career, also spending 14 years working on right-of-way projects up and down Williams’ Transco Pipeline.
“I grew up on a farm and saw a chance to better myself with a job at Williams and it’s been a great career,” Jack said.
Brian McCoy, the operations manager of Station 160, said Jack is a tremendous asset.
“Jack is just a hard worker,” he said. “There’s no two bits about it. He will outwork any one around him.”
“I have pretty much put my hands on everything here, more than once,” Jack said. “The challenge is what I like about it. Some days it’s hard but if you work at it you can do it.”
