#NDEAM Spotlight: Meet Roger
Meet Roger! Roger has worked at MRI for 34 years and currently works as a License Plate Tech in the Production department. He specifically works on the blanking line, but in the past has worked on roller coating and embossing. Roger knows A LOT about license plates!
We asked Roger why his job is important and he told us how license plates provides a good service for the state, and because if it weren’t for them, no one could drive! We couldn’t agree more.
Roger came to MRI out of high school and entered MRI’s Regular Work Program (now known as Supportive Employment). Before coming to MRI, Roger worked at a daycare at a church in Springfield.
You can tell that Roger really loves his job and is an extremely hard worker. When we asked him what he loved most he said “Everything. The people I work with are easy to get along with. The job is not too stressful” If he could switch jobs with anyone at MRI he definitely would not want to be the boss. Instead, he would want to switch with Dewayne, who is his foreman!
Here are a couple other fun facts we learned about Roger:
- If Roger had unlimited funds, he said he would invest in something
- His dream job is the job he’s currently doing at MRI
