The Mark S. Walsh Award
Mark S. Walsh was comptroller of NSA producer member Rein, Shultz and Dahl of Illinois and an active member of the Young Leaders (YL) Steering Committee. He was an energetic and enthusiastic supporter of the mission, purpose and activities of the YL. In the two years that Mark served on the Steering Committee he offered sage advice and unique insights on exactly what the focus and purpose of the YL should be for new young executives in the aggregates industry, like himself. Mark passed away of leukemia in 1999. He was 37 years old.
In memory of Mark’s leadership and commitment to the Young Leaders, the YL initiated the Mark S. Walsh Annual Leadership Award to be given to the one individual that, according to the award: “Exemplifies the leadership traits of professionalism, enthusiasm and commitment and whose efforts in improving and developing the image and programs of the Young Leaders are in keeping with the example set forth by the honoree of this award.”
In our industry we make our mark through the quality of our work, the honesty of our actions, and the integrity of our word. Mark S. Walsh led his personal and professional life by these ideals. His leadership and vision on the Young Leaders is missed and honored by this award.
The 2018 Mark S. Walsh Award, sponsored by Rock Products, will be presented at the 2018 Young Leaders Annual Meeting. To nominate an individual for this award, please complete the form below.
