For her many contributions to the community and this industry, Micron Facilities Engineering and Construction Manager Beth Elroy was honored at the 20th annual Tribute To Women In Industry (TWIN) Awards ceremony held recently in Boise.
Elroy is Micron’s first female construction manager, leading the recently completed state-of-the-art research and development facility (Building 50) and has served on the Governor’s Air Permitting Task Force, the Treasure Valley Air Quality Council and currently serves as a director on the Idaho Board of Environmental Quality.
In addition to her professional achievements, Elroy volunteers with Micron’s K-12 programs, teaches science lessons in area schools, provides students with job shadow opportunities and coaches youth sports.
“Being nominated for this award by Micron truly means a lot to me,” Elroy said. “The Women’s and Children’s Alliance’s vision is consistent with my personal values and I try to live those values through my relationships at work, in the community and through my friendships and home life. The WCA’s mission, fostering a community of safe, healthy relationships is important to me and I’m thankful for the Micron Foundation’s support of this organization.”
Elroy has been previously honored as one of The Idaho Business Review’s Women of the Year for 2012.
The Women’s and Children’s Alliance presents the TWIN Awards each year to those who have excelled in their fields and made significant contributions to industry in executive, managerial and professional roles and to those corporations whose policies and practices encourage high achievement by women.
The Micron Foundation was recognized this year for its continuing support of the TWIN awards during the last five years.
