Lester Sutton, Greater Latrobe Class of 1974, will be honored with the GLSD Alumni of Distinction Award at the annual Loyal & True Dinner to be held on Thursday, April 28th at the Saint Vincent College Conference Center. The Greater Latrobe Partners in Education Foundation Alumni of Distinction Award was established to acknowledge excellence among alumni of the Greater Latrobe School District. This award recognizes outstanding levels of professional achievements, service to the community and/or service to the Greater Latrobe School District.
In 1988, Mr. Sutton founded Aggressive Grinding Service(AGS), Inc., and the company that became North America’s leader in precision carbide grinding and advanced ceramic finishing. From the beginning Mr. Sutton’s vision was expressed in the corporate mission: “We treat our customers, employees, and vendors as we would like to be treated – with honesty, courtesy, and respect.” He extended that vision to the school district and to the community where he lives. Mr. Sutton, now retired as President/CEO of AGS, has served on a number of community boards including The Latrobe Foundation, Eastern Westmoreland Career & Technology Center, the American Red Cross, the Greater Latrobe Partners in Education Foundation and continues to be involved in the school community.
