Award of Excellence – Andy Davidson

Big congrats to Andy Davidson, one of our Mass Excavation Superintendents, for being selected for a Mayor’s Certificate of Excellence Award! His resourcefulness, team-player approach to problem solving, and work ethic went well above just completing the project “on-time and on-budget”.

The Davis Constructors and Mass Excavation team / A Stroke of Genius- WINS The 2018 Dave Thorsness Rowing Challenge!!

After taking a year sabbatical, the Davis/Mass group wanted to take on “The Dave” challenge again and brought a new team together.  “The Dave” is named in honor of a man who helped bring the sport of rowing to Alaska. This Rowing Challenge offers members of the community an opportunity to learn a new sport, encourage competition, support the team and other community agencies, while at the same time, having a boatload of fun. It’s a team sport where everyone, literally, has to pull together.

With Emma as our coxswain, our team pulled together to win each of four heats and took home the championship.  A big thanks to the 2018 participants:  Ken Andrews, Cody Troseth, Chase Swalling, Devin Gottschalk, Ethan Schneider, Gaute Johansen, Jessica Tramp, and Sharayah Dollente.  Jed Shandy/ alternate and team captain.

A weekend regatta that puts teamwork to the test!  The Dave offers members of the community an opportunity for the ultimate team building experience while learning a new sport, encouraging competition and at the same time, having a boatload of fun.

See you next year!
