Buck W. Wong Award

Working for Arcata has had a profound impact on my personal and career growth. Taking a position with Arcata allowed me to work closer to my family. This increased the amount of time I was able to spend with my loved ones and to pursue other interests like volunteer work and continuing my education. I used Arcata’s educational assistance program to complete my Master’s Degree which has allowed me to move up and become the Lead Project Manager and eventually the Maintenance Manager.
