ALEXANDRIA, VA – The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) today announced the recipients of the NSSGA Community Relations Excellence Awards. The Community Relations Excellence Awards recognizes producers’ achievements through the involvement in their community to enhance the public’s perception of their business, their facility and our industry. NSSGA is recognizing a total of five Gold, eight Silver and 37 Bronze Awards.    

“A strong relationship with our communities provides value to the facility and the citizens around it.  I am pleased to congratulate the winners of the Community Relations Excellence Awards today,” said NSSGA President & CEO Michael Johnson. “These awards allow us to celebrate those companies and their teams who build ties within their local communities that advance individuals’ knowledge about aggregates and the benefits that the industry provides to their neighborhoods and the country as a whole.”
