Sturgeon County is recognizing a community leader.
 
After 45 years of dedicated service, Garry Diouhy is retiring as senior operations manager of the Pembina Redwater Fractionation Site. In honour of the occasion, Sturgeon County has proclaimed Range Road 220 South as Diouhy Road.
 
The road naming stretches from Range Road 220 south of the 643 to Township Road 560.
 
"I always think it's very, very worthwhile to honour someone like that. His contributions have been significant," said councillor Karen Shaw.
 
Mayor Alanna Hnatiw and council made the proclamation in their May 22 meeting.
 
Diouhy was a full-time employee since initial hire. He helped take an 11 person, $20 million operation to a world class 200-plus person, $3 billion business.
 
The NGI facility is the largest of its kind in Canada and fourth largest in North America.
 
Diouhy has also been a supporter of Sturgeon County with numerous investment and community engagement activities.
