Community Involvement

  • Attention to detail and close project management are two of James’ specialties. When he isn’t stamping shop drawings or completing job site inspections, he spends most of his time serving as the Committee Chairman for Adamsville Boy Scout Troop 234. An avid scout for most of his life, James has been awarded the Silver Beaver Award from the Boy Scouts for volunteer work performed in the council and district. James has served as Lay Leader, Trustee Chair and various other positions at Adamsville FUMC. Beyond work, scouting, church, and family James likes to keep up with NFL and college football and basketball.
