Setting the Platinum
Standard for
Community Relations
By Jane Connors, NSSGA
Digital Media Manager

AT THIS YEAR'S 2018 NSSGA Annual
Convention in Houston, two operations
took home NSSGA's highest honor for
their outstanding community relations
efforts. FEC Quarry, a CEMEX operation in Miami, Fla., and Stringtown
Quarry, a LafargeHolcim operation
in Stringtown, Okla., each received
Community Relations Platinum Awards
of Excellence.
This year, FEC Quarry also earned
NSSGA's Two Stars of Excellence
award, a special honor for operations that receive two Gold Awards
for either Community Relations or
Environmental Excellence within a
five-year period. The quarry previously
earned an Environmental Excellence
Gold Award in 2017 and earned a
Community Relations Excellence Gold
Award this year.
"The people at FEC and Stringtown
Quarries exemplify what it means to
not just work in a community, but to
be a part of that community," said
Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president
and CEO. "This year we are honored to
recognize not just one, but two, exceptional operations for their outstanding
work in the community. Their outreach
programs have set the platinum standard for what it means to be a good
community partner."
"The FEC Quarry and all of our
operations in Florida are committed
to developing long-lasting relationships in their communities while working in a responsible and sustainable

fashion," said Kirk Light, CEMEX
USA regional president, Florida and
Carolinas region. "This achievement
demonstrates the FEC team's tremendous ongoing efforts in South Florida
to inform, educate and respond to the
community in which they operate."
"LafargeHolcim is honored at having been recognized by the NSSGA for
the prestigious Platinum Award for
Excellence in Community Relations at
Stringtown Quarry," said Guy Edwards,
CEO of LafargeHolcim United States
ACM. "This award validates our core
values and the exceptional efforts
made by our dedicated employees to
give back to the communities where
we live and work".

STRINGTOWN QUARRY

A True Community Partner
Since it began operations approximately 100 years ago, Stringtown
Quarry is one of the oldest and largest limestone quarries in the state and
a central feature in the small town.
As a highly visible business literally entrenched in the surrounding
community, the team at Stringtown
places an emphasis on developing and
maintaining strong partnerships with
local schools, civic organizations and
elected officials. The team's community outreach work shines through in
its commitment to telling the quarry's
story through education and its efforts
that continuously make the town a
better and better place to call home.
