Personal Note

The Wightman Family has been apart of my life for 32 years, and counting. The professional and personal relationships that I have been blessed to build over those years are too many to note. I’m humbled to have been entrusted in being a part of the Team that leads the Benton Harbor Survey Department and the role that I play in mentoring those that I work with.
