People You Should Know – Nolee Anderson

WARNING: The following video was not produced to raise money for mikeroweWORKS. However, it’s possible you’ll be so moved by the woman featured – a professional carpenter named Nolee Anderson – that you’ll feel an irresistible desire to support mikeroweWORKS. If so, you can satisfy that urge with a modest donation at If not, please enjoy the video anyway, and pass it on. These short success stories make a big difference with parents and guidance counselors, and I hope to produce a lot more this year.

Speaking of scholarship recipients, some of you have yet to respond to last week’s email congratulating you on your acceptance into the program. To receive the funds, we need to hear from you by tomorrow. Here again, is a list of the applicants. Check your inboxes.

It’s also possible that this video will make you curious about Joist – the organization that Nolee started to assist women who wish to enter the trades. Here’s a recent article in Forbes, that does her justice.

Finally, I want to thank Wolverine Boots & Apparel for supplying ALL of our scholarship recipients – once again – with a free pair of heavy duty work boots. Again, this video was not intended to make you pine for high-quality, affordably-priced, kick-ass footwear, but if you find yourself in need of some exceptional boots, and would like to support a company that supports mikeroweWORKS, you can do so here.

Again, if you like the video, please share it, and if you don’t please share it anyway. The country needs to know more people like Nolee…
