Project receives Golden Trowel Award

The masonry work on the archway wins the Golden Trowel Award.

Geneva College and members of the Beyond the Bend project team have received a 2009 Western Pennsylvania Golden Trowel Award for the masonry work surrounding the Pedestrian Mall arch.

“It’s exciting to hear that the beauty and quality of the workmanship on our pedestrian mall was nationally recognized,” says Jeff Lydic, director of Geneva’s physical plant.
