Company gets employer of the year thanks to one employee

Posted: Updated:

 Columbia Industries named Campbell and Company, known for heating and air conditioning, Employer of the year. The award came thanks to one employee named Jason Timmons, a worker who has been there for two years and comes in everyday with a smile on his face.

 "I do everything I like to do to keep myself going, to help my mom out more," Jason says.  

Jason has a learning disability, but his supervisor at Campbell and Company says it never slows him down.  

"He's very consistent, he knows what he needs to do on a daily basis and is one of those employees that's going to be in at work at the same time and get work done. Always here to do what you ask," supervisor Derrell Clark said.  

Thanks to Jason and his help with the recycling program, the company received the award.  

"He's always got a smile on his face," Clark said. "He always brings brightness to you when you see him. He's done a lot for us. He's contributed to our recycling program tremendously."

A contribution that has significantly increased recycling production by $1,000 a month. It's something that makes Jason very proud.
