The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) presents the C. DeWitt Brown Leadman Award to an individual with exemplary leadership in advancing the masonry industry each year. For 2016, that individual was Carolina Stalite Company's (Salisbury, N.C.) Charles Newsome.
Newsome was presented with this award by MCAA Chairman Mark Kemp at the MCAA annual meeting during the MCAA Convention at the World of Concrete/World of Masonry in LAs Vegas:
Charles has been a key leader of the Concrete Masonry Checkoff Program, which would help support research, education, and promotion intended to benefit all within the industry.
“Charles truly embodies, ‘Speak softly and carry a big stick.’ It is my honor and pleasure to present the C. DeWitt Brown Leadman Award to Charles Newsome,” said Kemp.
