Hats-off too Ridge Wilson, in the Tucson Shop, for being nominated as Employee-Owner of the Year by the ESOP Association.  Although Ridge did not win the award, we want to acknowledge his nomination.  This nomination honors a non-management employee of KE&G who has taken the initiative to become an exemplary employee-owner by learning about ESOP, helping to educate and motivate his colleagues, and actively promoting an employee-ownership culture.
