New White County Office of Emergency Management Director Tyler Mize got his start with the county when he was 16 years old. He was hired by former White County Judge Michael Lincoln back then to be a seasonal worker at the White County Road Department.
Lincoln said Mize “is an intelligent young man. He always does the best that he can do, so I’m real excited that he’s been given this opportunity.”
Mize, 29, worked the “asphalt crew” for Lincoln for a while and then went into the shop full time, working as a labor mechanic, “the tire man, lube and stuff,” he said. “I worked there for a couple of years and then went to a road grader position. I ran road grader for several years and I went from there to foreman, and I was a road foreman for the county for Judge Lincoln for a number of years.” Read more.
