The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) selected Springfield Underground’s Louis Griesemer as the recipient of the 2020 Barry K. Wendt Commitment Award.

Griesemer will receive the award during the NSSGA Annual Convention March 8-10 in Las Vegas.

“We are pleased to recognize Louis with our association’s most distinguished individual award for his dedication to family and service to the aggregates industry,” says Michael Johnson, president and CEO of NSSGA. “He has shown incredible commitment to improving both the lives of those around him and the industry broadly, and we are truly grateful for his service.”

According to NSSGA, Griesemer has been a leader in the aggregate industry as well as at NSSGA for years. He spent time as the association’s board chairman in 2007.

Griesemer’s efforts on safety spurred the creation of the Louis Griesemer Sterling Safety Award, which is NSSGA’s top safety award.

“I’m very honored to receive this award,” Griesemer says. “Barry Wendt encouraged me, as he did so many others, to actively engage in the association. I can only hope that I was able to encourage others in the way Barry inspired me.”

According to NSSGA, the Barry K. Wendt Commitment Award was established in 1998 to recognize an individual in the aggregate industry who exhibits the dedication exemplified by Barry Wendt, both in commitment to the industry and the community in which they live.

Bill Wetta, the senior vice president of product development and chief technology officer at DSC Dredge, received the Barry K. Wendt Commitment Award a year ago during the NSSGA Annual Convention in Indianapolis.
