Academic Excellence Award Winner Will Stone
For Will Stone, the decision to pursue a career in the electrical field was a natural choice.
After all, both of his grandfathers, two of his uncles, and even his wrestling coach all walked the same hallways before him –each a doer from their own time.
His choice was cemented during his sophomore year at Lakeville South High School.
“I took an electrical class and fell in love with the trade,” Stone said.
