Steven Young and Nat Cooney Earn G.E.M. Award

Steven Young, an ACRT utility arborist II, and Nat Cooney, an ACRT consulting utility forester, (CUF) recently received a G.E.M. Award for their “contributions resulting in significant productivity.” They were nominated by ACRT Operations Manager Benjamin (Ben) Potash.

Potash shared the following about the duo.

I want to recognize the significant effort and dedication by both Nat Cooney and Steven Young in responding to emergency storm response for [our customer] in the winter of 22/23. Nat and Steve were among the first to volunteer to assist [our customer] in a major storm over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and worked multiple 16-hour shifts. I’ve had to ask them to re-schedule personal plans multiple times in the past week and they always rise to the occasion and exhibit poise and good morale.
