The St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE) is pleased to announce that Michael K. Holmes, SLATE Executive Director, received Public Sector Executive of the Year Award from MOKAN St. Louis Construction Contractors Assistant Center (CCAC).
MOKAN CCAC recognized Mr. Holmes for his impact on the construction and building community, dedication and commitment to diversity in the workplace and the inclusion of MBE/WBE businesses to work on St. Louis City projects at its 37th Anniversary and Awards Dinner held on Friday, September 7, 2012, at the Hilton St. Louis Airport Hotel.
Since 1974, MOKAN has been carrying out its goal to increase the number of qualified minority and women contractors in the construction industry and to increase the amount of public as well as private dollars spent with those firms. MOKAN has expanded its focus to include business and educational classes for minority contractors and workers through the MOKAN Contractor Institute; a small business initiative focused on developing and strengthening the business acumen of construction firms and workers.
"It is truly a great honor to be recognized in this way by MOKAN. Its history of accomplishments in support of the St. Louis building industry has made a major impact on our community and the welfare of our citizens," said Holmes.
