LaVonne Kruse Celebrates 44 Years at Clark Engineering

August 31, 2017

LaVonne Kruse is the Office Administrator in Clark’s office in Aberdeen, SD. This September, we are happy to announce that she is celebrating her 44th anniversary with the firm.


After high school, LaVonne completed a one-year business course in a school that was coincidentally housed right above Clark’s office. She noticed a sign in Clark’s window announcing the need for a receptionist. LaVonne landed the job and has been with the company ever since.

The office was small, with only a half-dozen employees at the time. LaVonne answered phones, greeted visitors, and provided administrative support for projects. She’s still doing those things 44 years later, but the team is larger and the projects more complex (the technology has improved a great deal too). What hasn’t changed for LaVonne is what she likes most about her job – supporting a variety of civil engineering projects and interacting with clients and coworkers.

Congratulations, LaVonne, on your 44th anniversary! We appreciate everything you do.
