Just Orr

     Justin Orr is an employee at the Lapeer, Michigan location of the Marshall E. Campbell Company. He recently took it upon himself to sign up for a Dale Carnegie course. This course took him away from his family every Monday night for twelve weeks; he took the course because he wanted to improve his interpersonal skills. He not only had perfect attendance and graduated but he also won the two highest awards given and voted on by the class! He won the “Champion in Human Relations” and “Living the Course”. This was quite exceptional that Justin won both awards. Congratulations Justin, we are all very proud of you!
