Mellott University’s Student of the Month: Gunner Kunkle

“We can’t change what’s done, we can only move on” – Gunner Kunkle
Gunner is a student at Southern Fulton High School, and has lived in the area all his life, and he is lucky enough to call our very own Facilities Manager, Jonas “Buck” Smith, Uncle Buck. His favorite part of his position at Mellott is the Service Shop and all the guys who work there. Gunner said he considers Tyler Elbin, Process Engineer, a fantastic mentor, along with Dave Coleman, Technical Trainer, who he said was patient and a great instructor. Dave was equally complimentary about Gunner when he said, “Gunner Kunkle has been an exceptional student from the start. He has balanced his school programs along with Mellott University. (Soccer and FFA) He is always here and on time. Gunner follows instructions to a “T” and is not afraid to ask questions. Gunner performs very well with his training on the various fields that the program covers. Gunner has been a great addition to our program.”

He’s earning 45 collage credits!
Gunner is thrilled to be earning 45 credit hours towards his associate degree, and he plans to complete his final 15 credits and be a college graduate thanks to Mellott University.

Gunner loves the great outdoors and his Uncle Buck!
When he’s not at Mellott University busy learning, he loves fishing with his dad for Large Mouth Bass, riding his dirt bike through the woods, or working on his Chevy Silverado pick-up truck that he just happened to buy from…you guessed it, Uncle Buck.

Mellott is happy to have students like Gunner who strive to create their future in the aggregate industry.
