Lifelong Malden resident Glen Bowie realized he needed a dedicated worker to fill a laborer position at Hamilton Elevator Interiors in Saugus where he recently became owner.

Bowie had a string of bad luck with workers staying committed to the job. When Chamber of Commerce President Paul Murphy learned Bowie was looking for a hard worker who wanted to learn a skill, he contacted Mayor Gary Christenson and Malden High School Principal Dana Brown about recommending a responsible Malden High graduate.

Brown recommended recent graduate Wiston Jeune for the job. Wiston’s duties as an elevator fabricator include welding, woodworking, and all aspects of elevator making. After only four months, Wiston is thriving at his 40 hour a week job.

"We are thrilled to have Wiston. He has really taken to the position," Bowie said. "Wiston has a great work ethic, does his job well and is always looking for more to do."

"I’m grateful that Glen looked to his home town to give one of our talented graduates an opportunity – what a great way to give back to his community," Christenson said. "However, we may have to borrow Wiston to do some work on the elevators here at City Hall!"
