INEOS MA wins George Hall Award
Third year INEOS Modern Apprentice, Ellen Milne, was announced as the first ever recipient of the ‘George Hall Achievement Award’, presented by CEO John McNally on Friday 13 May 2016.
In memory of George, who worked at the INEOS Grangemouth site for almost 40 years until his untimely death in service last year, his family have donated an award in his name to be presented to a third year modern apprentice.
John McNally, CEO INEOS O&P UK said:
“It is fitting, that in memory of a valued employee George Hall, we are presenting this award today to Ellen Milne. George was a terrific supporter of the Company and, as an Apprentice Mentor, of our work in developing young talent. Whilst he will be sadly missed by all those on site he worked with, his lasting legacy remains with this annual award.”
The Award was presented to Ellen in the Boardroom at INEOS’ Business Centre, in the presence of George’s widow, Jane and son, Chris.
Jane Hall said: “George would have been so delighted that Ellen was selected to receive this inaugural award in his name. In the short time that Ellen has been working with INEOS she has already demonstrated similar values to those that he was renowned for – hard work, dedication and commitment to doing their very best.”
Ellen Milne, third year instrument electrical apprentice, who studies one day a week at Forth Valley College's Falkirk Campus, commented:
“I am very proud to have been selected to receive this award. I would like to thank all those people at Forth Valley College and at INEOS for their support as I work towards achieving my modern apprentice qualifications.”
