Metroflor Corporation/Halstead International appoints Chief Sustainability Officer

Russ Rogg, president and CEO of Metroflor Corporation, along with Harlan Stone, Halstead and Group CEO, announced the appointment of Rochelle Routman, LEED AP, O+M, as the first Chief Sustainability Officer for Metroflor and Halstead International. Chosen for her reputation as an alliance-building and forward-thinking professional, Routman will oversee product development, customer service and regulatory aspects in a collaborative fashion to define the greatest potential for environmental leadership. She will be based at the company’s Calhoun campus.

Rochelle brings over 30 years experience as a sustainability and environmental professional. At Lockheed Martin Aeronautical Systems, where she served as Pollution Prevention and Environmental Safety coordinator in the 1990s, she established a “green team” to focus on addressing environmental issues through proactive program initiatives rather than mere regulatory compliance: the precursor of what we now call sustainability. A longtime employee of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, where she ultimately rose to Program Manager of its Sustainability Division, she then joined Georgia Power Company & Southern Company. As Chair of the Sustainability Working Group, she honed the company’s sustainability program and culture development, external communications and partnerships.

Prior to joining Metroflor/Halstead, Routman achieved groundbreaking advances at Mohawk Industries as Director of Sustainability, where she developed a market-disruptive strategy with a focus on product transparency. She directed all product certification efforts and led the employee and executive sustainability engagement council. Promoted to Vice President of Sustainability, Routman became Mohawk’s external spokesperson worldwide, establishing continuity in programs across the commercial, residential, international and hospitality business, including soft surface and resilient products.

A graduate of the University of Georgia with a bachelor’s degree in Geology and the Georgia Institute of Technology with a master’s degree in public policy, Routman was named one of the Top 10 Most Powerful Women Sustainability Leaders by Green Building & Design magazine in 2014 and is now the alumnae chair of that organization. She is a LEED AP, O+M (Operations & Maintenance), a Certified Hazardous Materials Manager, and a Registered Professional Geologist. As a Living Building Challenge Ambassador, she is part of a network committed to changing the way entire communities value sustainability, equity and prosperity by advocating for the most aspirational green building standard in the world.

Said Rogg, “Over the years, Metroflor and Halstead have made great strides in our environmental and sustainability endeavors, and we have an unwavering commitment to continue pushing the envelope in this area of our business. Rochelle Routman joining our group allows us to build on what we’ve started while also pursuing new, innovative and creative ways to expand our sustainability platform. Rochelle brings tremendous knowledge, experience, credibility and passion to our organization, and we are grateful to have her lead our global efforts in the field of Sustainability.”

Routman commented, “Halstead and Metroflor have longevity and a very strong focus on constant innovation, both in product and organizationally. The company officers were looking for someone with a very strong emotional connection and passion for sustainability. I’m very fortunate to assume a leadership position here to guide the ship towards more creative ways to support both the business and the planet.”

Georgia DOT awards $171 million in construction projects

CARTERSVILLE, Ga. – Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has recently awarded 55 contracts for statewide construction projects totaling over $171.3 million. The 17 counties of northwest Georgia claimed nearly $7.5 million in construction project awards. These projects were advertised for bids in May. Bids were received in June and contracts awarded on July 1.

Georgia DOT’s first obligation with funds resulting from Georgia’s Transportation Funding Act (TFA) is to maintain and improve existing infrastructure. This month, bridge replacements represent a significant investment with $72.6 million in eight awarded contracts statewide.

The project to resurface 7 miles on State Route (SR) 53 Business between SR 515 and SR 108 in Pickens County is this month’s top dollar investment in northwest Georgia. This section of SR 53 needs resurfacing because the existing pavement is deteriorating. The entire project is expected to be completed by the end of May 2017, at a construction cost of $1,731,414.

Other projects in northwest Georgia include:

Resurfacing 8.661 miles on SR 136 in Dade County, beginning east of SR 58 and extending to the Walker County line

Guardrail replacement at various locations in Bartow, Gordon, Catoosa and Whitfield counties

Signing and striping upgrades at various locations in Chattooga, Walker, Gilmer and Pickens counties

Guardrail replacement at various locations in Dade County

Information on schedules, lane closures and detours will be made available in advance of construction activities. For general information about the Transportation Funding Act of 2015, visit www.GAroads.org.

In their 2015 legislative session, Georgia lawmakers addressed the state’s critical transportation infrastructure needs with passage of House Bill 170, Georgia’s transportation funding bill. The Transportation Funding Act (TFA) of 2015 is expected to generate an estimated $870 million in the first fiscal year. This sustained annual revenue will be used to fund much-needed routine maintenance and capital improvements.

It is a good idea to get that pressure canner checked periodically to make sure it is working properly and safely.”

Calhoun High School Majorettes win third DMA national title

The Calhoun High School Majorettes hard work has paid off- they captured their third Drum Majorettes of America national title this past weekend at Wingate University in North Carolina. The majorettes previously won the title in 2012 and 2014. The team is under the direction of Head Coach Tracy Farriba and Assistant Coach Madison Bunch.

“I’m very excited. This is one of their best performances,” said Farriba of the majorette’s performance at Nationals. “I knew when they came off the floor. It was a great run-through.”

According to Farriba, a team needs to score 70 percent or above for a first place finish. The CHS Majorettes scored 86 percent. Three individual judges, whose scores are then averaged for a final score, judged the competition.

In addition to the National Title, the majorettes were also recognized as the 2016 Outstanding High School Line. “We competed against a team from Mainland High School in Daytona,” said Farriba. “It was stiff competition; they were really good. But we nailed it. Our symmetry and showmanship were great and our routine was very complicated.

“It was hard,” continued Farriba. “The gym was packed and it was loud. The girls rose to the challenge and performed a great routine.”

Farriba said the girls twirled to the 2015-2016 halftime show but increased the difficulty of the routine. “We took four weeks off after football season ended and began training for Nationals in January,” said Farriba. “We took the routine up from football season and increased the difficulty. All of our girls twirled three batons; all did walkovers. We put the most spins in the routine that we could do on the floor. We had a toss double-walkover and a toss double-illusion. One thing I am proud of is our girls perform at an above level for a high school team. Not many high school girls twirl three batons. Our girls perform at a college level.

“We have two girls at the University of Georgia right now,” said Farriba. “We are a pretty tight line. I hope I’ve prepared them to take the next step.”

“The CHS Majorettes continue to exceed our expectations during halftime on Friday nights but it’s their hard work and dedication on and off the field that also make us proud,” said Dr. Michele Taylor, superintendent of Calhoun City Schools. “They spend countless hours practicing and perfecting their craft. We congratulate them on another successful competition and look forward to their upcoming season with the Calhoun High School Marching Yellow Jacket Band.”

“I’m incredibly proud of the Calhoun High School majorettes,” said CHS Band Director Larry Brown. “They have been working hard for six months to perfect their routine, and their hard work paid off. Congratulations to them and their coaches, Tracy Farriba and Madison Bunch. I couldn’t be prouder of these ladies.”

Organized in 1947, DMA is an organization that promotes the sport of baton twirling for individuals and uniformed groups.
