Tripp was one of four professionals recognized at the Council’s first annual “Heavy Hitters” Award Banquet for Concrete Promotion on October 21 in Baltimore.
“In nearly five years, Steve has charged forward in advocating a front-running place for concrete products, while energizing our organization with his can-do actions,” said Tom Evans, MRMCA Promotions Director.
Tripp was noted for his innovations and active participation in the promotion council, including board membership, chairing the paving committee and staying on target with political issues that have lead to positive policy changes in legislature.
