Jennings began his ca- reer along with his brother Dave behind Sprague & Henwood drills at South- eastern Diamond Drilling, which was owned by their father in Asheville, North Carolina. They took on well-known projects like the Blue Ridge Parkway tunnels and the elevator at Chimney Rock State Park in North Carolina. After earning a degree in geology from Stanford Uni- versity, Jennings enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and completed officer training at the Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Virginia. As a Second Lieutenant, he com- pleted two tours of duty in Vietnam. Jennings returned to Southeastern Diamond Drilling for a short time be- fore partnering with others to start a new company, Soil & Materials. The company performed deep hole explo- ration work in Kentucky for U.S. Steel. Some of these borings were in the range of 2600 feet. He also worked for Mountain Coal, which was involved in coal exploration in the southern Kentucky region. Sometime later, Jennings became a sales representa- tive for Brainard-Kilman Co. in Stone Mountain, Georgia, which was an au- thorized distributor of CME products at that time. This essentially planted the seed for his future with CME. After Brainard-Kilman transitioned to a Longyear company, Jennings moved on to work with other major drilling equipment manu- facturers, including Chris- tensen Diamond Products and Hoffman Diamond Products. He also spent some time with the supply company, Durham Geo before joining CME. RETIREMENT NEWSMAKERS continues on page 58 waterwelljournal.com
