Chris Fulton Highway Technician

chris-fulton.jpgA highway technician in Highland County, Chris Fulton is serious about his duties. Four years ago, Fulton fell into a well and punctured his leg on a galvanized water line. He could have lost his life; instead, this 10-year veteran worked at recuperation and returned to the department in four months.

"I was raised to have a strong work ethic, and I've always tried to work hard," said Fulton.

His spare time is spent on his family farm with his wife, four kids and a host of hogs and goats.
