Meet Ronald Fowlkes: As a sport’s mentor to youth, and an ex-veteran of the military, Ronald Fowlkes knows how to be a success story on many levels of his life
Ronald Fowlkes was once a Marine who served on the front lines for his country; he has also been a leader of a SWAT team in a huge city in the United States after leaving the Marine Corps to serve in law enforcement.
Much like many U.S. veterans, Fowlkes has a strong, abiding love for his country — he also strives to make it a better place with his help. When he was given the opportunity to mentor kids, he jumped to it.
Ronald Fowlkes can bring his enthusiasm for training, physical fitness, and the sport of ice hockey. Mr. Folwkes also mentions that he was once a member of the Marine Corps’ Special Operations and the U.S. Army’s prestigious parachute school. By sharing some of the personal stories about his life, he can help kids understand that there are people like him that are putting all the effort and everything on the line for them. Ronald also mentions that the youth are free to ask him questions that they wouldn’t necessarily ask. Ronald also wants to make sure that the children get good guidance so the future decisions that they make will be the correct ones. Fowlkes also quipped that sports are quite useful to get through to the kids.
Ronald Fowlkes has also enjoyed his role as a mentor and a father. Fowkles’ son has played ice hockey for three years with the Saint Louis Blues’ Triple-A team. Ronald Fowlkes may not be the coach of his son’s hockey team, but he is the trainer and the man in charge of the hockey equipment.
Ronald Fowlkes also stated about his role at being the equipment “guy” for his son’s team that he can teach the youth about the importance of taking good care of one’s gear. Having well-maintained hockey gear can sometimes be the difference between winning and losing.
In addition to his mentoring role, Fowlkes works for FirstSpear. FirstSpear is an organization that equips peacekeepers and soldiers on an international scale. Fowlkes first got to work with the FirstSpeaxr gear while he was a soldier. He never forgot how efficient the FirstSpear equipment was when he handled them — Fowlkes had a strong familiarity with the gear. Ronald Fowlkes also noted in passing that the FirstSpear equipment was well designed and worked flawlessly.
Today, Ronald Fowlkes has used his military and law enforcement experience to establish his own company, Eagle Industries Unlimited. Fowlkes is the Business Development Manager at his company. Part of his role at Eagle Industries is to educate 150 plus employees about the products that they sell — Ronald Fowlkes works directly with Law Enforcement and Commercial products that are developed and then sold.
