080714 bl GM ... Several workers at the General Motors Lordstown complex accept the American Cancer Society's Corporate Excellence Award on behalf of GM and the United Auto Workers. GM was chosen for the prestigious state-wide award because of the role the company and its workers play in the Relay for Life. This year the Women in Manufacturing team raised $23,000 for the Warren Relay, and the UAW 1714-GM team raised $2,800. The combined total is the highest of any organization in this year's Relay for Life season, said Erin Glista, Relay for Life Specialist for the American Cancer Society. Glista, front row, fifth from right, presents the award to Women in Manufacturing Relay team captain GM Industrial Engineer Monica Bokesch, sixth from right. Holding the Relay trophy is Alice Franklin of Liberty, a supervisor at the west plant, front row, sixth from left, and Debbie Gregory of Warren, who works in quality control, seventh from left. The presentation was made Thursday in the recently renovated lobby of the complex's Assembly Plant. Visible behind the workers is the mural that depicts work at the plant and some of its other charitable projects.
