Jay Man Wins Title Of National Electrician Of The Year

September 21, 2018

Thursday night, a Jay man was named the National Electrician of the Year by Klein Tools.

With a knock at his front door during a live online video stream, Mike Adams received the good news as his family stood with by his side.

Working in the trades isn’t just a career for Adams.

It’s a family tradition dating back four generations. With his mom, dad, uncles and cousins working by his side, there was never a doubt that Adams would grow to love and live by the rules of the trades.

Through his years as an electrician, Adams learned the importance of proper safety procedures and a dedication to even the smallest details of a job. He instills these lessons in the next generation of electricians as an advisor for SkillsUSA where he has helped lead many students to success in regional and national competitions.

Adam’s work takes him all over Escambia and Santa Rosa counties in Florida and Escambia County in Alabama.

Adams was previously named Klein Tools’ Southeast Electrician of the Year and won the national title. Judging criteria included professional achievement, safety excellence and community dedication.
