Awards were presented to the winners during the association’s annual Legislative All-State Dinner and Meeting, held at the Charleston Coliseum and Conference Center Monday evening.

“Each year, we honor those who recognize the importance of manufacturing to West Virginia’s economy,” said WVMA President Rebecca McPhail. “West Virginia manufacturers have to weather the highs and lows of market demand and other economic factors that can make it incredibly challenging to remain competitive. Fostering a policy environment that keeps us on a level playing field is vital, and we are grateful for the progressive leadership of those we have honored tonight.”

Senate President Mitch Carmichael, R-Jackson, Del. Geoff Foster, R-Putnam and Del. Andrew Byrd, D-Kanawha, each received Champions of Industry awards.

A fourth award, listed as the “WVMA Member Champion,” was given to Tim O’Neal of Dow Chemical.
