Plumber Ron Kyle obtains Master license
Construction hats off to Ron Kyle for obtaining his “Master Plumber’s” license on September 11, 2009. Ron was hired May of 2008 as a Plumber 2 with the Facilities Management Plumbing division.
Prior to Ron’s career in Plumbing, for four years beginning in 1981 he worked in the United States Air Force as a drug dog handler. But like his father who works in the air conditioning trade, Ron’s talents lie in working with his hands. This eventually led him into the plumbing industry and to UTHSCSA. In addition to receiving his Master Plumber’s license, in 2008 Ron has also obtained through UTHSCSA licensing as a Backflow Certified Tester.
Goals for Ron’s future? He would like to become certified as a Water Protection Specialist which evaluates and analyzes water systems and a Master Med/Gas Specialist. Just as Ron’s father was to him an inspiration, so too here at UTHSCSA is Ron. Congratulations to Ron on hard work well done.
