JONESBORO, Ark. — Hytrol is proud to announce long-time employee, Teressa Vinson is the recipient of the 2020 Loberg Award. She received the award during the company’s annual Loberg Day celebration on July 1 and the first female recipient.

“I am honored to receive this award. It was a privilege to get to work with Mr. Loberg, he was a great man. He took pride in his employees and they would do anything for him, myself included,” said Vinson.
