Gathers Toys for Local Children During the holiday season, Houston area McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. employees collected toys for Operation Stocking Stuffer, a toy drive for local underprivileged children sponsored by The Houston Fire Department and KPRC Local 2. McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. team members brought the collected toys to Houston Fire Station 28, where they were delivered to children in the community to spread holiday cheer. Through McCarthy's "Heart Hats" community involvement program, employees can get involved in local community service projects. The program is dedicated to encouraging, supporting and recognizing volunteer efforts in a variety of causes to ensure real needs are being met in communities where employees work, live and play. After a career that has spanned 45 years with the W. S. Bellows Construction Corp. as Vice President of Estimating, Jack Roberts is retiring and looking forward to spending time on his farm and family. When Roberts began his career with W. S. Bellows Construction Corp. in 1970, he had just earned a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Texas A&M. He was hired first as an intern by Jack Bellows and started full time, progressing through the company from Project Engineer to Vice President of Estimating in 1995. Roberts recalled one of his favorite projects: the Marathon Oil Tower where he served as superintendent for the first time. He credits two of his most influential mentors, George Bellows and Warren Bellows, Jr., for giving him not just a job, but a career in which he looked forward to going to work every day. Roberts leaves his legacy in good hands: Brent Miller who has been with the company for 19 years and is currently Chief Estimator will take over in Roberts' capacity. Jack and his wife, Wanda, plan on spending more time with their three sons and extended family. Congratulations on reaching this significant milestone and on a successful career! 20 Cornerstone
