This is what project manager Trent Keller had to say about Tyler Binkley: 

"I have chosen Tyler Binkley as my employee of the quarter for the second time. 
Since Tyler began on September 8, 2018, he has proven himself to be a very valuable employee. Tyler began as a new apprentice and has since graduated from apprentice school, and is getting ready to test. He will make an awesome journeyman plumber and an excellent foreman. Tyler is continually punctual and very trustworthy. The foremen fight over him to be on their job.

Lavaca High School
by Robin D’Onofrio

I visited Lavaca High School recently during their parent teacher conferences/career day. The students and their families were able to ask questions about Action, our apprentice program, and what we are all about. They were also able to take home literature and learn of resources regarding our apprentice bonus, full-time benefits, and how it all fits together.

Thank you Lavaca High School for having Action visit your school!

Welcome Siloam Springs High School!

Several of the senior class members, led by CASS instructor, Jarred Wyatt, came to visit us to see what we do and how we do it and to learn more about our Apprentice Program! 

Was a great time!!

Meet Elliot Claire Parsley!

Elliot was born February 11th, 2022 in Tucson, Arizona. She was 1lb 5oz at birth and 12 inches long. My husband, Cameron, and I began our adoption journey in September 2021 and found out about Elliot on February 14th. We were chosen by the birth mom on February 17th and flew to Arizona on the 18th to be with our new addition. Because she was so premature, I had to stay with her in the NICU for three months while she developed. It was an amazing experience watching her grow the way she normally would have inside the womb. We video-called Big Brother, Colt every day so he could see what Mom was doing and to meet sister as much as he could. Colt was able to come visit me twice while I was away, but he wasn’t allowed in the NICU. However, we did let them meet through the window. 

Elliot was diagnosed with Chronic Lung Disease early on, and because of this, she was on oxygen for a very long time. Her and I came home Memorial Day Weekend, and her oxygen made it so we had to drive instead of fly. We just weaned her off completely around the beginning of November. Since then, she has had good reports from her Specialists here in Little Rock. She is now 15lbs and developing well and big brother is smitten. 

Her adoption became final on September 27th so now we can share her with the world! 

Elliot is the granddaughter of Donny Cook and niece to Clayton Parsley, Evan Dvorak, and Eric Cook. 

Welcome Ivy Annmarie Hall!

Ivy was born on September 27, 2022, weighed 6 lbs 13 oz, and 20 3/4" long.

She is the daughter of Jared and Cassandra Hall. Grandparents include Ronnie & Martha Schmalz. Ronnie is our Barling pre-fab foreman.

Welcome Ivy!!

Welcome Colter James Binkley!!

Colter was born on October 18, 2022, at 6:30 p.m.

He is the son of Colby and Colton Binkley, from Jonesboro, AR. Colton is a graduate apprentice plumber from our Jonesboro office. Tyler Binkley is Colter's uncle, a 4th year apprentice plumber, also from our Jonesboro office. Both mom and baby are doing awesome!! 

Welcome Colter Binkley!!

Good afternoon,
I wanted to reach out and thank you for the generous financial aid supplied by the Action Family Scholarship.

Through the five semester course I get to learn everything there is to know about operating in and around a professional kitchen, along with exploring new cuisines and techniques in the culinary world. The scholarship offered through Action will continue to support me whilst I pursue my dream at the Culinarily Institute of America. It’s great to see such opportunities provided from a innovative company. I again appreciate your investment in my future, Thank You.
