Dr. Richard Abernathy joined the Coryell Roofing team because he feels the company shares the same goals that have driven his career–to help school districts and kids. He wants to help school districts obtain the free analysis of their roofs offered by Coryell Roofing to plan and budget for the future and prevent problems such as leaking roofs that lead to health problems for students and staff. Before joining the team, Richard worked in the Arkansas education field as a high school principal and coach, assistant superintendent, superintendent, and Executive Director of the Arkansas Association of Educational Administrators. Among some of his many administrative accomplishments are his leading the district and community to design and construct the state’s first two Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified school buildings and his partnerships with local organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club of Bryant and the American Legion Baseball program to provide additional opportunities for the community’s youth.
