Citizen, worker honored

Worker Honored from Panhandle Homes of Berkeley County

Special people who go out of their way to make a difference every day - that's the kind of people Berkeley County Commissioner Tony Petrucci was hoping to honor when he and county leaders created a monthly award program designed to highlight the work of a special county staffer and resident.

Petrucci, speaking at Thursday's commission meeting, said the July honorees - Allen Henry, president of Panhandle Builders and Excavating; and Bonnie Woodfall, Berkeley County's chief deputy of voter registration - again represent "the best the county has to offer."

Henry was selected to receive the monthly "Berkeley County Excellence in Community Service Award" because of his professional and personal contributions to the area, Petrucci said.

After reading an extensive list of his community contributions - including a land donation to the Berkeley County Library, site building donation to the Poor House Farm Equestrian Center and his donations to Hedgesville High School as well as his work with the Martinsburg Boys and Girls Club -Petrucci said, "I believe it shows a lot that when people need something, they go to Allen Henry and he is always willing to help."

He is someone who "goes beyond what they're merely supposed to do," Petrucci said.

Henry, who was accompanied by many of his employees to the meeting, credited his family, including his brother David, the company's vice president and co-owner, as well as staffers for having made this 24-year-old business venture successful.

"Berkeley County has been good to us. ... And we like to be involved in the community," Henry said.

Commission President Ron Collins, who recalled his experiences with Henry's projects as a member of the Planning Commission, had nothing but good things to say about those earlier times.

"He was always well prepared, which made our decisions easy. ..Even now, he and his company have pretty much kept us in business during this housing drought," Collins said.

Commissioner Bill Stubblefield credited Henry for the time he'd spent serving on various committees and the contributions he's made in that capacity.
