Ryan Ottinger has been selected to receive the Norwell Internship Student Spotlight award. Ryan is currently doing his experience at Colliers Comfort Services Inc. of Ossian in conjunction with the Norwell Work Based Learning program. His supervisor at Colliers is Renee Sweeney. Ryan is the son of Todd and Diane Ottinger.
Ryan has learned a great deal in the HVAC industry working at Colliers. One huge part of his job is to run supplies to the work sites. This normally involves driving trucks to Shob Inc. in Ft. Wayne to load and transport general HVAC supplies to various workplace sites. He also drives to Water Furnace Company to attain geothermal supplies. Once Ryan gets the supplies where they need to go, he will stay at the worksite to help install the HVAC units. The experience he has gained with this internship has been the best kind of education a teenager can get at this point in time.
After graduation, Ryan plans to continue working to gain the kind of knowledge he will need on his way to his journeyman's certification.
