Jerry Cook wrote on the Region 4: Arkansas Chapter wall: This has been great learning year for me being a part of a wonderful organization. I think we all learn in our professions each and everyday for I know I do. When one thinks they know everything the game is over. I've been working in the water industry for going on 15 yrs. Over 4 years ago I took over our utilities cross connection program. We supply water to over 105,000 people. I run this program with heart and passion knowing I'm doing the best for our community each and every day. I challenge all to do their best in what they do each and everyday. I hope you all have a great and wonderful day. Jerry Cook :)
