Andrew Wint of the Lewis E. Wint & Son Funeral Home in Clarkston was one of 50 funeral directors nationwide, and one of five in Michigan, selected to participate in the National Funeral Directors Association’s (NFDA) Meet the Mentors program.
Meet the Mentors, March 11-13 at the Emory Conference Center Hotel in Atlanta, Ga., brought young funeral professionals together to learn from three of the country’s leading funeral directors and network with like-minded peers.
Andrew, third generation funeral director at the Lewis E. Wint & Son Funeral Home, attended mortuary school at Arapahoe College in Colorado and has been a funeral director since 2012. Andrew’s father, Bill Wint, owns the funeral home, which was founded in 1959 by Andrew’s grandfather, Lew Wint.
“The NFDA mentoring program was an extraordinary opportunity. I was able to meet and get to know other young funeral directors and learn about how advances in science and technology can help us better serve our families,” Andrew said. “It was such an honor to be chosen for this program.”
“We are always trying to improve, with value added services and products,” said Jenni Simsack, who manages the funeral home. “The ideas Andrew brought back from the program will definitely help us do that.”
Meet the Mentors has been funded by the Funeral Service Foundation since the program’s inception in 2011.
