Lakeland Builders Association (LBA) presented three member awards and installed their 2021 Board of Directors at their annual Installation and Awards Christmas event held Dec 11 at Alpine Valley Resort, East Troy. Awards presented include Builder Member of the Year, Associate Member of the Year and the President’s Cornerstone Award.
Jean Kruzan, J Kruzan Construction and Remodeling, Lake Geneva, was presented the Builder Member of the Year award. 2019 winner Jeff Burg presented the award stating, Jean “has been there, done that and done that again and again and again.” Jean stepped up under unexpected circumstances and found even more unexpected circumstances in 2020. Yet, “she persevered with determination and a can-do attitude.” Jean served as the 2020 President and then further volunteered to lead the effort on the new Parade of Homes online event.
Beth Wydra, Johnson Financial Group, Burlington, was presented the Associate Member of the Year award. Jeff Burg also presented this award, stating, Beth was “being pulled out from behind the scenes to front and center… because Beth is someone who accepts a task without question, gives more than expected and doesn’t seem to seek recognition.”
