August 2017
After six years in the U.S. Air Force, Shawn Campbell knew that in civilian life he wanted to work with his hands. Doing what, exactly, he wasn’t sure. But he knew it would be in Maine, because his wife’s employer was transferring her to The Pine Tree State. That’s where Boots2Roots helped Campbell on the path to HVAC training and eventual employment with Estes Oil & Propane in York.
