Vig, Hay to be honored with NSSGA awards

By |  February 24, 2014

NSSGA will present three awards reflecting outstanding grassroots contributions in 2013 at its Honors Awards Ceremony during its annual convention in Las Vegas. Astec Industries’ Joe Vig will be presented with the Grassroots CEO of the Year Award; John Hay of Oldcastle Materials will be recognized as the Grassroots Coordinator of the Year; and Ryan Lindsey of Oldcastle Materials will receive the Grassroots Advocate of the Year Award.

According to NSSGA, Vig met with numerous members of Congress and congressional staffers in 2013. He also hosted a number of elected officials at his company’s facilities, where he engaged them in discussions on the need to address surface transportation reauthorization and find a sustainable source of revenue to fund the program.

Hay will be honored for implementing a successful company-wide effort in support of NSSGA’s grassroots plans, as well as participating in numerous one-on-one meetings with members of Congress and hosting elected officials at Oldcastle facilities.

Lindsey will be recognized for his role in meeting with dozens of members of Congress and staff, developing and maintaining relationships with key elected officials, and his after-action activity reports to keep his company and NSSGA informed of lawmakers’ positions on issues of importance to the aggregates industry.
