The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) gave top honors to Vulcan Materials Co.’s Stafford Quarry and to Luck Stone’s Powhatan and Spotsylvania operations during the NSSGA Annual Convention held in late March in Las Vegas.
Vulcan’s Stafford Quarry in Stafford, Va., part of Vulcan’s Mideast Division, received an Excellence in Community Relations Gold Award, a national award recognizing a superior level of active involvement with and positive contributions to the facility’s neighboring community. Luck Stone’s Powhatan plant in Powhatan, Va., won a Gold Award for Environmental Excellence, and its Spotsylvania plant in Fredericksburg, Va., received a Gold Award for Community Relations.
Stafford Quarry has been a long-standing participant of Vulcan’s Adopt-a-School program, which partners with Friends of the Rappahannock — the largest donor to date to the Stafford County Civil War Park — and offers tours of the operation to school groups, Cub Scouts, and geology students.
