TPR Star: Lorenzo Echols, Jr.

When asked why he nominated Lorenzo for TPR Star, Kelvin Wright said it was due to the way Lorenzo embraces his entire job. “He’s in early every day, making sure his equipment is full of fuel,” said Kelvin.  “Then, he stays late every night, greasing it. When he’s not operating the equipment, he is operating on the equipment.” Lorenzo just celebrated his eighth anniversary, starting in March 2009. He lists his daily goals, saying, “I try to take my time and do it right the first time, and I clean my equipment. If you clean it, you can see what’s going on and it runs better. Equipment that’s running right makes it a lot easier to do your job.”
