Vestal Team Member Coaches Team to Conference Championship!

This fall Vestal Corporation’s Marketing Coordinator, Adam Hubbs volunteered as a coach for the Columbia Blue Jay’s junior league football program 5th & 6th grade team. Adam’s involvement with the Blue Jay’s began 18 years ago as a player. The players and coaches put in a lot of hard work and preparation practicing three nights per week starting in early August. All of the hard-work and preparation paid-off with the team finishing their regular season with a record of 8-2 and winning the Southwestern Illinois Youth Football Conference Championship two weeks ago. It is great to see Vestal’s team members giving back to their local communities. Great job Adam!

Lake Taneycomo

A Perfect Day! #VestalCorporation #IntegratedDesignExperts

Arantxa Sanchez

Arantxa Sanchez

This summer Arantxa Sanchez interned for Vestal Corporation at the Constellation Brands Brewery in Nava, Mexico. Arantxa is a junior at Universidad de Monterrey studying civil engineering. A large part of Arantxa’s learning experience included meeting with construction team project managers and superintendents to review progress and gain a better understanding how engineering designs are implemented in the field.

Arantxa stated that “Vestal’s team was always available to help, which gave me the confidence to do things outside of my comfort zone in meetings and on the job site.” Arantxa returns to college this fall with a greater understanding of engineering principles and how they are implemented in the field, as well as, greater confidence in her ability to relate her course work to her experience at Constellation Brand’s Nava, Mexico Brewery. Mat Bartels, Vestal’s Nava Project Manager was very pleased with Arantxa’s performance and thought she was a great asset to the Nava team. Thank you Arantxa and best of luck as you continue your education.
