GREENSBORO, NC (March 13, 2019) NC811 recognized Max Chapman as a Damage Prevention Ambassador at the Burke Caldwell Utility Coordinating Committee Meeting on Tuesday, March 12th.
Mr. Chapman served in the US Marine Corp during World War II with active duty in Saipan, Okinawa, and Japan. After service, he began his career in construction as a heavy equipment operator. His love of construction led him to start his own company where he built homes around Burke County. Later in his career, he worked at Broughton Hospital where he retired as the Manager of the Carpentry and Maintenance Department. His love of the industry inspired him to serve the community.
In 1983, Mr. Chapman was nominated to the Brentwood Water Corporation Board where he has served for the past 36 years and continues to serve as the Vice President even today. He is 93 years young, but does not let that stop him from being a vital part of his local UCC. Ann Rushing, Education Manager stated, “Mr. Chapman is an inspiration to us all. He has spent his entire life giving back to the community and does not let anything stop him from continuing his service. He richly deserves the great distinction of being a Damage Prevention Ambassador”.
