Rosemont, Ill.—The National Roofing Contractors Association has released the second episode from the second season of its podcast series, Stories of an Extraordinary Industry. The purpose of the podcast is to enlighten, educate and inspire by sharing roofing professionals’ firsthand accounts of their meaningful experiences and stories in the industry.
In the NRCA Healthcare-sponsored episode, “Sweet Josephine Lilly,” Shayne Havens, vice president of production for Legacy Restoration LLC, Plymouth, Minn., shares his story of homelessness, love and hope. When he married a woman from Jamaica and became 4-year-old Josephine’s stepfather, Havens had no idea how much one incredible little girl would change his life. Because of Josephine’s influence, Havens was inspired to pursue his dreams, overcome a devastating tragedy and change the lives of other Jamaican children by providing college scholarships, positively affecting the future of the nation through education.
