I was born and raised in Manitowoc Wi. After finishing school at Manitowoc Lincoln Highschool, I went on to join the Marine Corps where I had the honor of being part of the Presidential Security program. My hobbies are going to the gym and shooting on the range. After getting out of the military, I worked for the government in Virgina before moving back home to Wisconsin and joining the Endries solar family in hopes of becoming an electrician.
My name is Alex Scholz and I have always enjoyed electrical work having worked with robotics installation and was very excited to make the switch to solar with Endries. My hobbies include drumming in a band called the pineapple hunks, gaming and hanging out with friends.
