KULPMONT — The Keystone Contractors Association and its board members recently launched the “Thomas George Memorial Community Service Award” to recognize construction workers who display relentlessness within the community and excellence on the construction site. On Feb. 20, Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters member Steve Motyka, of Kulpmont, was the first-ever recipient of the award.

“There were newspaper clippings I read that featured Steve discussing the great efforts of the team of volunteer carpenters,” said Jon O’Brien, executive director of the Keystone Contractors Association. “However, I discovered it was Steve as the driving force to see these community projects get completed.”
