RACINE, WI — In association with InSinkErator, the National Auxiliary of the Plumbing Heating Cooling Contractors (PHCC) has named Patty Jones of Houston, Texas, its 2015 Member of the Year.
Jones was presented with the 2015 Larry Dore Member of the Year Award during the association’s national convention, Connect 2015, Sept. 30 – Oct. 2. During that event, InSinkErator and the PHCC National Auxiliary also recognized six PHCC Auxiliaries for their notable achievements over the past 12 months.
“Patty Jones embodies the ideal PHCC Auxiliary member,” said Janet Dugger, PHCC Auxiliary National President. “Those who know her say she is tireless, a committed citizen and a wonderful neighbor. Most industry members have been impacted by her service to PHCC and the Auxiliary over the past 27 years.”
Jones has served the Auxiliary as National Treasurer, National Historian, a member of the Registration and Marketing committees, as well as acting as the 2004 Convention Committee Chair. Jones and her husband, Bill, were founding members of the PHCC Educational Foundation and both serve on the Foundation’s Board of Governors. In addition, she has been a member of various national committees and has held several offices at the local and state levels.
