We’re highlighting Brie Pfannenbecker (#ConnecticutStone), one of our three nominees for the 2019 #WomenInStone Pioneer Award. This quote from her 2018 mentee Paige Gherardi Lamthi says it all: "Brie is a true advocate of advancing women in the stone industry, and she is a prime example of a woman paving the way for others in the industry. She has motivated me to become more proactive and get more involved in some aspects of our company to gain a more wholesome understanding of the management side. She is an inspiration to young women in the stone industry and is very deserving of the Pioneer Award." This year's Pioneer Award winner will be announced at the #NaturalStoneInstitute's Awards Ceremony on January 23 at @tiseevents#tise2019. We hope to see you there!
We’re highlighting Dawn Caroll (#Cumar), one of our three nominees for the 2019 #WomenInStone Pioneer Award. One of her many notable accomplishments is the #OverMyShoulder Foundation. She has said, “I believe there is nothing more dangerous than a hopeless person and our hope is to use music to stimulate great positive thinking and mentor a calm.” This year's Pioneer Award winner will be announced at the #NaturalStoneInstitute's Awards Ceremony on January 23 at @tiseevents#tise2019. We hope to see you there!
We’re highlighting Monica Gawet (#TennesseeMarble), one of our three nominees for the 2019 #WomenInStone Pioneer Award. We love this quote from Magdalena Schoenwetter, Monica's mentee through the mentorship program: "She proved that it is possible to have a career and a family. Besides bringing her business to success she raised three sons and showed the world that with dedication, passion and a strong will – everything is possible." This year's Pioneer Award winner will be announced at the #NaturalStoneInstitute's Awards Ceremony on January 23 at @tiseevents#tise2019. We hope to see you there!
Time for the first #WomenInStone Spotlight of 2019! Today we're highlighting Amanda Fisher, janitor & general laborer at #AlabamaStone, a division of @vetter_stone. Here's what she has to say about working in the stone industry: "I love it because of the opportunities available. By working in the #stone industry, I have done a lot of things that I never thought I could do." This is what #WomenInStone is all about!
