MONTANAN OF THE WEEK

Mr. President, this week, I have the honor of recognizing Andy Anderson for his over 60 years of work as a barber.

Andy grew up in Harlowton but spent a few years in Two Dot where his parents worked as ranchers. After turning 17, Andy went to barber school in Washington but swiftly moved back to Montana following the training. He opened his first barber shop in Stanford and shortly thereafter opened a second in Denton. In December of 2017, Andy celebrated his 60th year as a barber.

Andy believes strongly in giving back to his community. He spent four years serving as State Barber Inspector on the State Barber Board. This involved visiting barber shops around the state, inspecting their shops but also offering any assistance he could to local barbers. Additionally, he spent a term serving as a member of the city council.

I congratulate Andy Anderson on his tremendous career. He has improved the lives of many around him, and will continue to leave a lasting impact on the people of his community and the greater state of Montana.
