U.S. Army Specialist Sic Stevens comes from a family of servicemen and servicewomen. His father was in the Army and his mother served in the Navy. He is a proud grandfather and father of five grown children, and his son is currently serving in the Army as well.
Stevens feels honored to have served in the Army from 1986 through 1990 as a rifleman with the 4th Battalion/502nd Infantry Berlin brigade. He recalls many moments that make him proud to have served his country to protect our freedoms. Since then, Stevens has worked on many Ford interior cockpit programs, from instrument panels to the Super Duty®, receiving multiple patent awards along the way. Originally hired at Ford Motor Company in 1996, he is now assigned to the upcoming all-electric 2022 Ford Explorer.
While in the service, Stevens learned a lot about himself as a dedicated team player who was committed to his peers and to the mission they shared, and feels that this work ethic applies to his civilian life as well.
Ford offered Stevens the opportunity he needed as he transitioned from the military to civilian life and feels it’s important that veterans are supported and connected to each other in networks like the Ford Veteran Network Group (VETNG).
When Stevens is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family and pets, as well as walleye fishing with his wife whenever he can. He’s also an active trustee of Vets with Nets, a nonprofit group that takes fellow veterans out walleye fishing in a tournament event each summer, allowing him to share his passion for the sport with other veterans who aren’t as fortunate to fish the big waters of Lake Erie.
