Mentor of the Month

October’s Mentor Spotlight is shining on Kyle King!

When asked what motivated him to become a mentor, Kyle said:

“The company I work for, McKinstry, partners with K-12 school districts across Florida and the rest of the U.S. to improve energy performance, provide sustainable solutions, and educate faculty, staff and students about energy conservation and sustainable initiatives. A big part of McKinstry’s culture is Building Good, a core company value focused on giving back to the community. As such, a number of my team members and I got involved with the Take Stock in Children program in Florida to help mentor and guide students within our communities.”
