At only 7-years old, Aria Lothery already knows she wants to work at Atlas Machine and Supply when she grows up! She is determined to follow in the footsteps of her dad and granddad--Andrew Lothery and Jeff Wright--who both work in Atlas’ Machine Shop. Andrew, who works in the Grind Shop, says his daughter calls Atlas the “Big A” and wants to work with him. Aria is a second grader at East Washington Elementary in Pekin, Indiana. Wearing an Atlas cap, Aria proudly shared her choice at the school’s recent Career Day.
Aria’s interest in working at Atlas is something that did not suddenly develop. She has described it as her “dream job” and wrote about the choice months ago for a school assignment. Aria represents the future of Atlas. And like her dad and granddad, we’re proud of her choice.
