Community Involvement

We are committed to strengthening our communities.

PARSON CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

In 2000, our company and its founders pledged $1 million to Weber State University to help found the Parson Construction Management Technology Program. This program provides education and training to several hundred students and benefits the entire construction industry.

ROCKS BUILD OUR WORLD

Mining and aggregate production are the foundation of our business. For this reason, we educate thousands of students each year about the vital role aggregates play in our everyday lives because rocks really do build our world. The outreach program dovetails with the fourth grade geology science curriculum and provides students a fun, interactive, and hands-on learning experience. For more information on the program, or to see if we can visit your local school, please contact Lisa Nielson at lisa.nielson@stakerparson.com.

Most of our sites are available to schools, church, and other youth groups as an active educational resource. Visits can also be used for class projects. While at the sites, people learn about concrete and asphalt as well as mining operations through hands-on learning activities.

CAUSES

We believe in strengthening the communities we serve through awareness campaigns and community initiatives. We support are Most Don’t, an initiative in Tooele County to change the perception that most teens drink when in fact, Most Don’t. We have also formed a partnership with Parents Empowered, Utah’s media and education campaign designed to prevent and reduce underage drinking. Several trucks from our ready-mix fleet feature innovative graphic messages to encourage parents to set concrete “no drinking” rules for their teens.

Truck Smart

We proudly dedicate our time encouraging and teaching safe driving practices. UDOT’s Zero Fatalities Truck Smart program teaches driver education students the importance of driving safely around trucks by teaching them things like truck’s “No-Zones” by showing students the truck’s blind spots first-hand while allowing them to sit inside the big trucks.
