Wood River Refinery – Part 2!

“What is the root of all success? Attitude. Having a good attitude, no matter your career, fuels everything else.” – Jerry Knoyle
--
CEO had the unique opportunity to tour the Wood River Refinery this morning with project engineer, Ryan Frank. Before their driving tour of the property, students met with Jerry Knoyle, (Refinery Manager). Jerry shared his personal journal and global experience with the company, providing several key takeaways:
--
⭐ ATTITUDE is the key to success.
⭐ There is good and bad in every job and every opportunity. Seize every chance to learn and take something away from every single experience.
⭐ There is one global truth for all people regardless of who you are or where you live…We all share the common value that we care about our families and want to provide for them. If you recognize this commonality and keep your attitude in check, you can get along with anyone.
--
A huge thank you to Ryan, Jerry and everyone at the Wood River Refinery for being such wonderful hosts! We appreciate your time, enthusiasm and support of our local CEO programs and cannot wait to visit again next year!
