TRC Chapter SPY Nomination Form

The roots of this award hail back to April 16, 1947 when an explosion destroyed Monsanto’s Texas City plant killing 512 people. Edward Monsanto Queeny, then president of Monsanto, grieved over the destruction and developed a deep personal commitment to protect workers from industrial accidents and health hazards. It is in his memory that Monsanto sponsors the SPY Award for outstanding accomplishments by one of the Society’s top professionals. To learn more about this award, visit SPY Award.
