Greg Wingrath

"Greg has been working for SOMO for over two years now in the Program area. With our Building and Grounds person retiring it has temporary left us with a void for ensuring the Area is set up for the various uses needed each day. Greg is willing to take it upon himself to jump in and help set up equipment as need from day to day. He just makes sure it is done."
