Each month, Socket employees nominate co-workers for the award and then vote on one winner who best reflects Socket's Core Values and Beliefs.
Quisenberry started at Socket in 2012 as a field services technician, and was soon promoted to department supervisor. Additionally, he is now responsible for the development of a construction team for Socket's outside plant builds, including fiber drops for both residential and business customers.
"I applied to Socket after reading about the rural fiber-to-the-home project, and wanted to be a part of it," said Quisenberry. "A bonus for me was learning about how Socket's network and telephony in general works."
Originally from Mexico, Missouri, Quisenberry has always been a musician. In his free time, he is a vocalist and lead guitar player in local band Primitive Soul, which regularly plays shows all across mid-Missouri.
