For many years, The Righter Company has joined the Central Ohio Construction Community to support A Kid Again families raising children with life-threatening illnesses. A Kid Again provides adventures that enable kids to get out of the hospital, forget about being sick and just be A Kid Again.
Righter employees who enjoyed a day on the green: Nick Miller, Project Manager; Bill Wyner, Estimator; Chris Thompson, Project Manager; and Mike Killilea, President.
Featured is our ODOT District 6 project in Columbus, Ohio, located off I-70 at Broad in Franklinton. The work consists of the removal and rebuild of 5 existing stormwater pumps and motors at Pump Station ST8. Nick Miller is the Project Manager and Tom Ison is the Field Supervisor. Field Crew is Shawn Ison, Josh Preist and Robert Ward. The project has a current completion date of January 2022.

The prevalence of suicide deaths in the U.S. is astonishing, but together we can create positive change. During National Suicide Prevention & Awareness Month in September, join us in spreading the facts about suicide and educate others on how we can help those who may be struggling. You just might save a life.
