NRMCA presents the Richard D. Gaynor award to an individual for lifetime contributions that have positively impacted the ready mixed concrete industry. The award is named for Mr. Gaynor who retired as executive vice president of the NRMCA Engineering Division in 1996 after more than 40 years with the association. This year, the NRMCA Research Engineering and Standards (RES) Committee has selected Jerry S. Haught, PE, as the recipient of the Gaynor award. Mr. Haught recently retired from CEMEX and remains active as a consultant to the industry. He managed an impressive quality management program with Rinker Materials followed by CEMEX in Florida and other U.S. divisions. Mr Haught advanced to broader managerial responsibilities toward the end of his career.

Mr. Haught was active at CMEC in Florida, the Florida Concrete & Products Association, ACI and NRMCA. At ACI he was served on committees on hot weather concreting, high strength concrete and specifications. He was a member of the NRMCA RES Committee and strongly supported the association’s research initiatives, the efforts to evolve to performance-based specifications and initiatives to revise industry standards with a practical focus. Mr. Haught chaired the NRMCA plant certification task group that under his tenure made several improvements to content and policy, including establishing an education and approval process for plant inspectors. He will receive the award at the Awards Breakfast on March 8 at the NRMCA Annual Convention in Las Vegas.
