Junior Achievement of Western PA, founded nearly 80 years ago, recognized Oberg Industries as its Impact Company of the Year this past Wednesday, November 14, at an evening awards ceremony in downtown Pittsburgh with more than 300 guests in attendance. In addition, the organization also honored four individuals for their contributions whose extraordinary efforts have enriched our community. Oberg joins an impressive group of regional firms celebrated over the years by JA. The selection of Oberg for this award recognizes, through the collective efforts of each of its employees, the company’s contributions to the business, social and cultural assets of the Pittsburgh region.
The opening speech for Oberg was delivered by Megan Mitchell, a 9th grade student at Knoch High School and a Junior Achievement alumni. Megan is the daughter of Craig Mitchell, Account Manager at Oberg, and granddaughter of Dennis Mitchell, who retired from Oberg after 38 years of service. She was the perfect candidate who did a great job of introducing the company to the audience and presenting the award to Oberg CEO, Dave Bonvenuto.
