SPOTLIGHT EMPLOYEE...Joe Murphy went
to work with Crowder Construction Company in
1963. They were working in Whiteville, N. C. on a
utility job and came back to Charlotte with one of
me men trom the job.
He went to work with
Sammy street work.
Soon afte starting, he
showed a lot of interest
in finishing concrete.
After several months
and a lot of sweat, he
worked himself up to a
finishing position. Over
the years he has worked
with all the foremen in
the Chrlotte area and
has learned that even
though finishing is a
major part of placing
oncrete, tnere is a lot more involved in complet
ing a job and selling it to the owner. In the
summer of 1975 the company felt that Joe was
capable of managing a crew. Since then he has
been working on various city jobs and is doing a
fine job as a foreman.
Crowder Construction Company is very proud
of their new foreman who lives at 1824 N.
Brevard Street, with his wife Annie and children
Jerry and Pam.
BASKETBALL SEASON ENDS....The John
son C. Smith Golden Bulls ended their regular
home season on a winning note by defeating
Livingstone College 108-95 and North Carolina
College 99-88, in two very eventful games.
Against Livingstone, the Bulls played before
an overflow crowd at Park Center, sponsored by
the 100 Club. At this game two hams were given
away along with a 1976 automobile, won by a
lucky man living in Jamaica, N. Y.
The second game played in the match box of
Hartley Woods gym on Smith’s campus didn’t
garner the excitement as the first one but
boasted a standing room only crowd.
