LafargeHolcim announced that two of its quarries will receive the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association’s (NSSGA) 2018 Excellence in Community Relations Award during the NSSGA Annual Convention in March. Lattimore Materials Stringtown Quarry in Stringtown, Okla., received a gold award and Presque Isle Quarry in Presque Isle, Mich., received a bronze award. Both will be eligible for the platinum award.
“We are thrilled NSSGA has recognized two of our sites for their efforts in building strong, long-lasting relationships within their communities and for always striving to be a good neighbor,” said Guy Edwards, CEO of U.S. Aggregate Construction Materials at LafargeHolcim, in a press release. “Our commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live and work has always been a priority at LafargeHolcim, and we plan to continue being a leader in this area within the industry.”
The Community Relations Awards program recognizes aggregate producers that help to enhance the public perception of the industry and their individual operations by supporting local communities. Award recipients have worked with their communities in many ways, including local events, donations, and volunteer services; local and state government involvement; media relations; and educational opportunities.
“Every year, the recipients of the NSSGA Excellence in Community Relations award demonstrate the benefits of being a responsible corporate citizen and how aggregate operations can be an asset to their local communities,” said Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president, in the press release. “Strong community relations programs, like those at the Stringtown and Presque Isle quarries, are paramount to showing the benefits of the industry to our neighbors.”
