Evergreen Names Sheatz Award Winners

Relton and Stabila earn Excellence in Education Awards.

The Evergreen Marketing Group awarded its ninth annual George A. Sheatz Excellence in Education Award to the top manufacturer instructor participating in the group’s 2012 training program.

Supplier instructors are rated by students and Evergreen training center staff during each school. Those instructors who achieve the highest ratings earn the award. Two individuals received the prestigious award for their work in the 2012 training year: Darrell Hammond of Stabila, Inc. and Patrick Kearl of Relton Corporation.

The award is named after George A. Sheatz, a former tool and fastener distributor who was instrumental in Evergreen’s training & education programs for nearly 20 years.

“George had a life-long commitment to professional development that inspired Evergreen’s training programs,” said Kevin D. Higginbotham, chief executive officer of Evergreen. “Over nearly two decades, thousands of tool and fastener distributor sales people were touched by George and his passion for learning.

“In winning this year’s George Sheatz Award, Darrell and Patrick along with Stabila and Relton join an elite group of professional trainers in the tool and fastener industry,” he said.
