By Michele Dotson  Dotson.michele@minthilltimes.com

Long-time Mint Hill resident and 1988 Independence graduate Brett Ford is ringing in the New Year with a promotion at AT & T. This is Ford’s second promotion since joining the company in 2000.

“My first position for 10 years was a Service technician,” says Ford. “Then in 2010 I became a Facility Technician working on everything from the cut wire in your backyard, the jack in your bedroom that quit working, DSL, networking, high speed data lines and everything in between.”
