Lesleh Precision is based in Rostraver Township and produces 50% of the parts for Henry USA Rifles & Shotguns.

The top honor of the night went to Mark Alterici, the recipient of the ‘Shining Star Award.’ Mark has served on several boards and committees for MVRCC, Washington County Chamber of Commerce and Washington County Board of Tourism. He is a trustee for the Charleroi Community Park, belonged to several clubs and has been mayor and is a current councilman in Charleroi. When something needs done, Mark is there to help or find help.
