We love our community.
We work proudly every day through our business projects and causes to help build the Susquehanna River Valley into the best version of itself that we can. Community involvement has always been a cornerstone for what it means to be a Meck-Tech employee.
Art Thomas currently serves as Chairman of the Early Learning Investment Committee of the Susquehanna River Valley (ELIC). ELIC advocates for increased public spending on quality early learning, strives to improve awareness throughout the greater Susquehanna river valley of the importance of providing quality early learning for all our children, and takes action whenever and wherever it can to meet these goals.
Art also serves on the board of the Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way. Working on the grant distribution process to ensure that all of the region’s United Way partners receive the financial assistance they need year after year is rewarding. However, the added burden that COVID-19 placed upon our partners throughout 2020 and 2021 made the distribution decision making process all the more challenging, and rewarding.
For 2021 and 2022, Art is the Chairman of the Board of the Greater Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce. His Meck-Tech experience as the Monroe Township, Snyder County Municipal Engineer while working on the recently completed Hummel Station Power Plant and 34-mile natural gas line projects, and the Central Susquehanna Valley Transportation Project added a wealth of local economic development knowledge to the Chamber over the last ten years. He has also been fully engaged with workforce development initiatives over the past six years, fighting to help get our middle school and secondary school students career and college ready, while striving to provide our valley businesses with qualified employee candidates.
Art is a member of the Hummels Wharf Fire Company. He is a past president of the Shikellamy Youth Football League, past board member of Sunbury Quadraleague Youth Baseball, and was a youth soccer coach. Raising his family in our community has been a full time job for over 20 years.
Scott Shambach averages one mission trip per year, helping low-income villages throughout South and Central America, and Africa. He has been making these trips for more than 15 years. He is a member of church council and treasurer of the Mifflinburg Church of the Nazarene.
Mike Thomas resides in Sunbury, and recently has been part of the Mayor’s initiative to create the Sunbury Wetland and Environmental Education Project (SWEEP), transforming the undeveloped land between Sixth and Eighth Streets and Line and Race Streets in the city. He also was a member of the Police Station Redevelopment Committee, overseeing the renovation designs for the new Sunbury Police Station on Arch Street.
