On May 23, 2012, IECA of Arizona unveiled the new “Ernie Reynolds Award” during its’ annual Apprenticeship graduation dinner & ceremony. The award which is given to the Apprentice of the Year, was renamed in recognition of Reynolds who passed away last June.
“Ernie supported our Apprenticeship program in a big way” said Nancy Levy, the director of IECA of Arizona. “Everybody knows who Ernie is and we thought it was the right thing to do, to put his name on this award”.
Throughout his many years in business, Reynolds was involved in IECA of Arizona including serving as President in 1995.
“We are so proud they have chosen to honor Ernie in this way. He would be so humbled and grateful,” his wife Sharon said.
This years’ recipient of the Ernie Reynolds Award went to Steven McCabe of Trinity Power & Electric, Inc. and was presented by Manuel Gaytan, Vice President of Reynolds Electric.
Among this years’ graduates was one of our very own, Donald Acevedo. Our congratulations to Donald, Steven and all the graduates for their dedication and hard work in completing this program.
