Frank Lenik Receives Key Governor Award

Schonstedt Instrument Company congratulates Frank Lenik, Professional Land Surveyor, on receiving the Key Governor Award from the Board of Governors, National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS).

According to Curt Sumner, Executive Director, “the Key Governor Award was developed specifically to recognize extraordinary effort by a Governor, which is clearly an honor, especially considering that it is bestowed by one’s peers.”

Patrick Smith, Chair of the Board of Governors, adds that “Frank Lenik’s involvement in the Schonstedt Humanitarian Demining Initiative made it readily apparent that surveyors can play an effective role in society that reaches far beyond the everyday practice of the profession and the professional licensing requirement that surveyors protect the health, safety and welfare of the public in their professional endeavors. It is through an extension of his efforts that the NSPS Governors realized they could promote this very worthwhile initiative in all 50 of their respective states and, as such, recognized Frank’s humanitarian dedication by awarding him the honor of the Key Governor Award.”

Schonstedt notes that Frank’s efforts have contributed to the deployment, at no cost, of over 300 magnetic locators to United Nations humanitarian demining teams in 19 of the world’s most mine-infested countries.
