The recent efforts of Tri-State’s Craig Station employees put the association at the top of the Moffat County (Colo.) United Way’s list of 2011 contributors, with the workforce giving a combined amount totaling $84,512. “We are fortunate to have so many generous employees working at Tri-State and we are appreciative of the matching funds approved by our board of directors,” said plant manager Rick Johnson.
Johnson, along with Craig Station maintenance planner/scheduler Steve Martin, attended the organization’s awards luncheon last week at the Craig Holiday Inn, where they received recognition of behalf of all their co-workers. Martin also currently serves as vice chairman on the Moffat County United Way’s board of directors.
Coming in second on the list of contributors with total giving of $66,386 was Colowyo Coal Company and its employees. Trapper Mining, Inc., the coal mining operation adjacent to Craig Station — which is partially owned by Tri-State — was the third highest contributor at $65,572.
