I have lived in our small quaint community of La Verkin my entire life and have had the pleasure to grow up with a lot of people in our area. My employment started as a bag boy at Lyman’s then moved to construction until I was hired by Ash Creek Special Service District. I have been an employee of Ash Creek SSD for over 30 years and will retire in September.
