It presented the touching personal story of how the Tower Family Foundation (TFF) helped tower climber Randy Smith and his wife Debbie from Rolla, Kan. after he experienced an injury while working at a tower site in rural Kansas.
“This video tugs at the heart strings and is a powerful narrative of how the Tower Family Foundation steps in to support workers and families at their most vulnerable stage,” said Foundation President Jim Tracy from Burley, Wash.
“Randy’s story is similar to the countless other workers and families the Foundation has supported since our inception in 2014 and we look forward to continuing to provide this support with the help of the industry moving forward,” said Tracy.
The video’s impact was felt on the exhibit hall floor as many attendees visited the Foundation’s booth and pledged to support the TFF’s efforts to provide a helping hand to industry workers and their families.
Beau Aero of GME Supply said the video has also increased the amount of attendees that are stopping by GME’s booth to purchase a specially designed TFF t-shirt. All proceeds are contributed to the Foundation.
Laughter is the best medicine
Following the video, Willie Robertson, star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty and CEO of Duck Commander, provided a staccato burst of humorous life experiences with the underlying message of his three priorities of faith, family and whatever is important to each individual.
Although his family’s company is wildly successful, his message resonated with the packed room estimated to be at 900 attendees, that it didn’t happen overnight and similar to wireless contracting it takes a great effort to achieve success, oftentimes requiring many years of hard work.
