24 CELEBRATE 25+ YEARS! Posted on Nov 4, 2011

Longevity is a part of the corporate culture at Peterson Tool Company. On Friday, November 4th, the company set aside time to celebrate this fact as they welcomed three new members into the 25-year club. Ron Taylor, Bryon Fountain, and Terry Rodgers entered the ranks of this esteemed group this year and joined twenty-one others in the illustrious group. Each is pictured with Nancy Peterson Hearn.

Lunch was served by ‘Uncle Bud’s Catfish’ – a local favorite. Also pictured here is Nancy with two of the four living retired members of the 25-year club, Pat Morton and David Lifferth

Pictured above are nearly all of the prior inductees along with Rod Huff, Executive VP and Diane Peterson Edwards, VP & Director of Human Resources.

Pictured next to a bust of the founder, John Peterson, Sr. with Nancy Peterson Hearn are three of her five daughters: Linda Peterson Benson, Diane Peterson Edwards, and Angela Peterson Graham. Diane and Linda both works at the company and Angela was visiting from New York City.
