KCTC Employees of the Month – Mike Litwiller, Jeff Miller, and David StockmanPictured above from left to right: David Stockman, Jeff Miller, Mike Litwiller 

This month we recognize a team of great people! We had a crisis over the weekend of March 10th and the team of Mike Litwiller, Jeff Miller, and David Stockman pulled an all-nighter to ensure service was restored to our customers as quickly as possible. These three individuals always pull through in time of need and we appreciate them all so much! We also appreciate the help of others from our staff that were involved in getting services restored, but these three were the ones that stuck with the project from beginning to end until the job was finished. Thanks to Mike, Jeff, and David for spending time away from your families to make certain that everything was restored and for making our customers number one and never complaining! Your work ethic is second to none and we are so fortunate to have you as a part of our team!
