NAPA OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE AWARDS: COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT AWARDS

program represent different
businesses in the area that are
either current or potential future
leaders in the community. Each
month, the student group visits a
host company to learn about the
particular business and how it fits
into the local workforce. Barrett
Paving hosted the Institute's
Construction Day. Students were
given a tour of the Watertown
quarry and asphalt plant,
followed by a visit to Watertown
International Airport. At the
airport, the students toured a new
hanger and runway to learn how
airplane navigation at the airport
works and how expansion plans
on the runways will meet the
community's future travel needs.
At the 2016 Run for Recovery,
an annual local fundraiser to raise
money for the awareness about
the impact of substance abuse
and to promote education about
addiction treatment options in the
community, Barrett Paving had a
team of six runners at the race. The
event was dedicated to two young
local men who were in their early
20s when their lives were destroyed
by substance abuse.
Barrett Paving also participated
in its 10th annual American Red
Cross blood drive. Thanks to the
help of a first-time donor and
returning donors, 15 whole blood
units were collected, which can
help up to 45 patients who need
blood transfusions.
Beyond the company's education
and workforce development
efforts, community fundraising
and blood donations, Barrett
Paving also holds an annual Open
House. In 2016, the Open House
was held at the Norwood location.
Neighbors in local towns and
village employees, as well as Barrett
retirees were welcomed. Guests
enjoyed a lunch and the warming
glow of several pots of hot coffee
on a cold day, as well as the feeling
of neighborly goodwill.
