Jo Rae Wagner, the national president of the Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Contractors Association for 2006-2007, was honored today with a Resolution in the Texas Senate Chamber, presented by Sen. Eddie Lucio, Jr.
“Ms. Wagner is a fine example for other women to emulate,” said Sen. Lucio. “I am proud to know that she resides in my Senatorial District, and her leadership and dedication to involving more women in the construction industry is indeed admirable.”
Ms. Wagner, a mechanical contractor in Harlingen, is the second woman to serve as the president of the national association since its inception in 1883. She has worked in the construction industry for 34 years and is currently president of CTO, Incorporated, a Harlingen company.
Several members of the Texas Heating and Cooling Association were also recognized.
