November 2019 Employee of the Month:

Clint Verdone

Clint has been with us at Colony for almost 5 years now. He is a Loader Operator at our Burkeville Asphalt Plant. Clint says he can't live without all 3 of his girls...his wife Beth, and his 2 daughters Makayla who is 5 and Alyssa who is 15 months. Their home is in Burkeville with their 7 horses. When Clint isn't at work he enjoys working around the house and getting some target practice in. Clint said that some of his favorite food is his wife's pizza and lasagna, as well as her cookies. 

Clint has lived here in Virginia for about 10 years now but he used to live in Connecticut where he was a Volunteer Firefighter. He was even sent to New York City with his captain right after the attacks on 9/11. He explained that he saw so many people come together in a time of need. Clint said it's something he'll never forget. 

Clint talked about his job at Colony. "I like that I'm never doing the same thing. I might be needed in the truck or to run the plant." Clint also really likes how family oriented Colony is. "In just the five years that I've been here it's hard to believe the amount that Colony has grown." 

Burkeville Asphalt Plant Manager, Jason "Turkey" Shumaker had a lot of great things to say about Clint. "This nomination I feel is passed due on my part because I’ve become used to the extra effort he puts into his job on a daily basis. Clint is always willing to help out in any way he can, from fixing mud flaps to opening gates in the middle of the night. He often comes in before and after storms to check on the plant to help ensure that we will be ready for production on the next day. He has learned the operation and has been able to fill in for me in times of emergency and vacation which has been a big help. He communicates with crews and customers very well and I have received good comments on his interaction with the public. He is a good representative of Colony and we are fortunate to have him on our team."

Way to go, Clint!! Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication! We are proud to have you be a part of the Colony team!
