We all know that there never seems to be enough time in the day. Between work, family, running to the grocery store to get dinner on the table and just everything that life throws at you, it can be hard just to enjoy a cup of coffee, let alone give back to the community. However, none of this stops Michael Seales.
A Chevron employee in Maintenance and Reliability, Michael is said to volunteer at every event that Chevron participates in.
“I’m just paying it forward. People have helped me out through my life in various ways growing up, so I want to give back and help others.”
“When I was coming up as a kid, we had guys like me helping out in the recreation department teaching us different sporting skills, and it has led me to volunteer at things like sporting events. I also enjoy helping people in their homes, like installing smoke detectors. I want to do the things for others that people did for me.”
Michael enjoys volunteering with children’s organizations because he cherishes making an impact on children’s lives.
“I feel like you have to start with them young in teaching them the right things and things they need in life in general. My hope is that you teach them values now and they can hold on to that as they get older.”
