Material’s Transport truck driver Allen Thewes is a prime example of living out the Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc. Values Statement: Family, Team, Customers, Community. Thewes was honored with the 2015 Celestine Park Distinguished Service Award earlier this month, in front of family and friends, in a ceremony following Mass at St. Celestine Catholic Church, where Thewes is a lifelong member.
Thewes credits winning the award to simply helping out where he’s needed. St. Celestine parishioners told DC Herald Reporter Wyatt Stayner, “Thewes goes to just about every church event there is and the list of clubs he belongs to serves as evidence of his dedication to giving back.”
Thewes is a member of the Knights of Columbus, St. Vincent de Paul, Celestine Community Club, where he’s helped with shooting matches, as well as a member of Celestine Park. Thewes also assisted at some fundraisers for the town’s upcoming 175th birthday in 2018. Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc. President Ken Mulzer, Jr. congratulated Thewes on receiving this well-deserved award. “Recognition for Allen’s hard work and dedication to his community is a perfect example of a Mulzer Employee living out Mulzer Values,” commented Mulzer.
“I like to be around people and help out,” Thewes told Reporter Stayner. “It’s a small town. Everybody pitches in a bit. It doesn’t seem like a job.”
