SIS Quarry earns Excellence in Community Relations Award

Congratulations  to our team at the Southern Illinois Stone Quarry in Buncombe, Illinois!

The SIS Quarry has earned the Excellence in Community Relations Award – Bronze from the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association for 2016.

The Community Relations awards program was begun in 1989 to recognize aggregate producers whose community involvement and support activities enhanced the public’s perception of the aggregates industry in general and the public image of the individual producer’s aggregates operation in particular.

NSSGA firmly believes that an active community relations program is the best way for an aggregates producer to demonstrate clearly that an operation can be and, indeed is, an asset in any community and that the individuals who manage and work at aggregates operations are both good neighbors and responsible corporate citizens.

The ultimate goal of the Excellence in Community Relations award program is improvement of the public’s perception of both local crushed stone, sand and gravel operations and the aggregates industry by generating positive media exposure.  It is designed specifically to:

  • Encourage Producers to Become Involved With And Support Their Local Communities.
  • Encourage Producers to Develop Support Activities that Emphasize the Personal Involvement of their Employees Working Together with People in the Community.
  • Encourage Producers to Begin Working with Local Media to Develop Positive Coverage for All Aspects of Their Community Activities.

The commitment of the team at the SIS Quarry to make a positive contribution to the local community has been recognized throughout the entire country.
