Pioneer Service Honored with SPARK Community Outreach AwardOn March 15, the Valley Industrial Association (VIA) hosted their\u00a02018 Spark Awards, where Pioneer Service was honored with their Community Outreach Award.We at Pioneer humbly thank VIA for\u00a0their commemorative video\u00a0\u00a0highlighting the company-wide effort to break barriers for students of manufacturing. Accepting this award on our behalf was our own Aneesa Muthana, who spoke on the critical role manufacturing leaders play in developing young talent. \u201cIt\u2019s not about men versus women or veterans against millennials,\u201d said Aneesa. \u201cWe must team up to strengthen this industry.\u201dManufacturing never takes a day off. At Pioneer, we open up our doors for kids and students, both inside of the company and out. Though \u201copening doors\u201d means literally inviting students into our facilities, it also means\u00a0engaging with government officials\u00a0and participating in educational events. Each is an opportunity to break boundaries for students and bolster the industry\u2019s tomorrow, when manufacturing can continue to play a large role in a prosperous U.S. economy.Headquartered in Geneva, Illinois, the VIA acts as a regional trade association for local manufacturing businesses. Founded in 1902, the non-profit organization provides networking, guidance, and leadership development to more than 220 members. For more information, please\u00a0visit their website.
