Turner Industries Honored with United Way Golden Eagle Award

Turner Industries’ pipe fabrication shop in Paris, Texas, has been honored with a United Way Golden Eagle award from United Way of Lamar County for their 2015 campaign contributions. The award was presented at the recently held annual awards luncheon. Residents of Lamar County raised over $700,000 for United Way and 30% of that total was pledged by Turner employees. These employees pledged $207,000 to United Way of Lamar County and an additional $15,000 to United Ways in surrounding counties, where some of our employees live. This year’s pledged amount was a 36% increase over last year’s pledge which earned Turner Industries the 2014 Golden Eagle award. This is the fifth Golden Eagle awarded to Turner since 2006.
