Jackson, MS – November 15, 2019 – Waste Pro is pleased to announce the promotion of Stormy Lewis to the position of Division Manager in Jackson, Mississippi.

Lewis, a second-generation garbage woman, joined Waste Pro’s Hattiesburg division in 2013 as a temporary employee while earning her degree from University of Southern Mississippi. After graduating with a Bachelor’s in healthcare marketing, she joined Waste Pro full-time as Office Manager in 2016. In 2018, she became the division’s first female route supervisor and earned her commercial driver’s license (CDL) through Waste Pro’s Co-Heart Program. Shortly after, she was promoted to her most recent position as the division’s Operations Manager.

Also, in 2018, Lewis was selected as a member of Waste Pro’s Leadership Initiative, a mentorship program designed to train a second generation of Waste Pro leaders.

“Stormy never sits still and waits for things to happen. She makes things happen so the job can get done,” said Southern Mississippi Regional Vice President Chris Lockwood. “Her creativity brings new ways of thinking to the job and new approaches to problem solving. I have no doubt that this new role will put Stormy well on her way to being Waste Pro’s first female Regional Vice President.”
