Congratulations to our 2022 Winners and  . . . .

Recognition of our 2020 Winner, Sutton Woolley, a high school sophomore.  She works in her family business, Woolley Home Solutions.  Her parents and brother were on hand to support her.  Since we didn’t formally recognize Sutton at our 2020 event, we wanted her to have the full experience at this conference.  We will have to wait until sometime in the future to find out what Sutton future holds.

Our 2022 Winner, Veronica Miller, is a 35-year-old mother of three children. She lives in Charleston, South Carolina and is currently attending Trident Technical College, enrolled in their residential HVACR program, but also plans on continuing her education on to the commercial side as well.

She had a 13-year career in nursing but felt a calling to something else. She was working as a home hospice nurse when she saw firsthand some of the living conditions some the patients under her care were experiencing. She realized that the energy industry too could be a very rewarding career.

Her program coordinator, David Provenzano, Trident Technical College, highly recommended her.

Veronica’s goals include owning her own company. She wants to be able to find energy efficient and cost-effective ways to give back to people in the community.  To read more about Veronica, visit our Blog.
