The 10th annual “Under 40 in Construction Equipment Awards” have been announced by Construction Equipment Magazine and S.W. Rodgers Company is excited to congratulate our very own Josh Allen as being named one of the 15 nation-wide award winners included in the Class of 2022. The awards are presented to professionals in the construction equipment industry throughout the country for leadership skills, inventiveness, interpersonal skills, training, dedication, personal integrity, technical skills, and industry and community involvement. Josh was nominated for his contributions as an instructor at Lord Fairfax Community College’s Heavy Equipment Operator Fast-Track Career Training Program. He is known as a “Trail Blazer” by the LFCC staff due to his willingness to become the program’s very first instructor. Josh was not only the first instructor for the program but was also instrumental in developing the program for high school, online, and work release students. He is receiving this award because he is a great example of the diverse and vital talent that will lead our industry into the future. His commitment and passion have brought much needed talent to the construction industry and have been instrumental in developing a successful Heavy Equipment Operator Program. On behalf of Construction Equipment Magazine, Kurt Rodgers, Chuck Rodgers, Miriam Pearson and Donna Comer, (LFCC Program Manager for the HEO Training Program) presented Josh with a commemorative plaque as recognition of his talent, knowledge, hard work and dedication. Congratulations Josh!
