Thomas Jernigan serves as Glover’s Equipment Fleet Manager with over 10 years of experience working with NCDOT. Growing up on a family farm taught him that hard work, dedication and faith are needed to keep yourself going as well as the equipment.
Thomas graduated from NC State with a B.A. in Leadership and a minor in Agriculture Business Management. He also received his A.A.S in Heavy Equipment and Transportation from Johnston County Community College.
In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, restoring antique farm equipment, riding three-wheelers, and farming.
His advice to students: “I started playing sports in middle school and learned teamwork makes the dream work. Start introducing yourself to people and build a network of friendships. Of all the unpredictable things in life the only two things you can control are your attitude and how you react to a situation. Listen to those that have been where you are trying to go in life. Be patient and when opportunity knocks, answer the door.”
