The Steel Erectors Association of America (SEAA) honored two members with the William Davis and Person of the Year Awards at its annual convention in March in Dallas.
Alan Sears, national accounts sales for Nucor-Vulcraft/Verco Group, based in Florence, S.C., received the William Davis Service Award. The award is given in memory of William Davis, who held board and committee positions with SEAA in the 1980s and 1990s. Davis spent most of his career selling wire rope and rigging products.
Ed Valencia, director of Safety and Training for LPR Construction, Loveland, Colo., received the Person of the Year Award.“The Person of the Year recognizes dedication and hard work demonstrated by a volunteer. Often this person has worked tirelessly on a special project for the betterment of the industry,” said Tom Underhill, executive director of SEAA.
Both awards are nominated and voted on by the SEAA Board of Directors and Executive Committee.
