I just want to share with all of you about the son of one of our customers and how this young man has taken his childhood experience of growing up in the appliance repair business into education, training and beyond.
Michael Moore is the son of Kelly Moore of Salem Appliance Repair and Antiques in Salem, Oregon. He has grown up helping his dad clean and repair appliances since he was a child. He helped his father start Salem Appliance Repair and runs the business on summer and winter breaks while his dad goes on a well deserved vacation.
Michael is now a senior mechanical engineering student at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX and will be graduating in May. His list of accomplishments is very high:
Member, chapter public relations officer then regional VP for the international honors society Phi Theta Kappa
Officer and webmaster of ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers)
Founding president of the Tech Gun Club
Team member of HVAC group design project and the senior mechanical engineering design project
One of ten selected nationally for ASME Petroleum Division's Collegiate Council
Co-founder and operator of Salem Appliance Repair
And the list goes on and on.
Michael is actively looking for employment that will utilize his education, appliance knowledge and organizational skills. He has applied to several companies, one of which is Whirlpool's WERLD Program. (Whirlpool Engineering Rotational Leadership Development Program). Check out this program Whirlpool offers - this is where the next generation of appliances is coming from. Having come from an appliance repair background, Michael is aware of what works and doesn't on appliances, and what it's like to actually repair them and not just design them.
It is always a pleasant - and sometimes interesting - time when Michael is home working at the shop. He comes up with questions that I have never heard in my 13 years of working here. He definately keeps me and his father (yeah, we're both Kelly's lol!) on our toes!
Michael - good luck on your career endeavors and I am pleased and proud to know and work with you!
Have a great week!
