It’s sort of a rare occurrence to have both an instructor and an employer come from the same family. But when you’re talented with a strong work ethic, sometimes it just happens. For Ranken grad Andrew Stephens, going from student to employee and maintaining a relationship with brothers Dave and Mark Munie has been beneficial.

Stephens is employed by Beloman Plumbing, where coincidentally Mark Munie is his manager. Before Beloman, Dave Munie was Stephens’ instructor and Plumbing department head.

“Andrew is a great addition to our company,” said Mark Munie. “Since coming on-board he has worked both residential and commercial projects. He has a great work ethic, is timely, and complies with our company policies. Andrew is well-spoken and knowledgeable, serving our clients well. ”

Dave Munie agrees. “Andrew is a great guy who is willing to do anything for you. A true team player. I’d hire him in a minute if i was an employer!”

In addition to his work ethic, Stephens graduated May 2020 from the Plumbing Technology program, Summa Cum Laude.
