THOMAS GEORGE MEMORIAL COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD
Nominations Presented annually by the Keystone Contractors Association to members of labor who make a difference in their community.
ABOUT THE AWARD:
The Keystone Contractors Association’s Thomas George Memorial Community Service Award was created to honor the members of labor who are making a difference in their community through their actions, skills and dedication. The honorees for this award serve as a role model on the job and in the community, as they strive to improve the place they call home. The namesake of this honor was an active community volunteer and a dear friend of labor in Thomas George. Tom served as the Executive Director of the KCA in the 1980’s and was active with the KCA well before he came to this position and well after he left it. He was well respected and trusted by labor, serving on numerous Pension, Health & Welfare, and Apprentice Boards across Pennsylvania. He was also appointed to the Pennsylvania State Advisory Council of Vocational Education and to the State Apprenticeship & Training Council. Outside of his career, Tom was a tireless servant to his community. Along with coaching Legion Baseball, he also served on the Central Dauphin School Board of Directors for 34 years. Additionally, he was on the Board for the Harrisburg Area Community College, as well as serving on numerous committees for his church. Throughout his life, from 1924 to 2016, Tom George gave back to the construction industry and to his community. It is extremely fitting that this award bears his name.
