At the July National Masonry Instructors Association meeting in Myrtle Beach, three new members were inducted into the association’s Hall-of-Fame including one from North Carolina. Inducted, left to right, were Tim Kidd, retired masonry instructor, Union County Career Center and West Stanly High School; Dana Martini, Superior Clay Corporation; and Eugene Johnson, retired from Lake Marion High School in South Carolina. Tim Kidd retired from West Stanly in 2013 after instructing masonry for twenty-three years. His programs produced two SkillsUSA National Masonry Champions; Brandon Tarlton in 1997 and Marcus Hefner in 2007. His program at West Stanly earned what is now called the Doug Drye Award for Overall Best Performance at the annual North Carolina SkillsUSA masonry competitions. NCMCA’s Ryan Shaver was a presenter at the meeting along with Southeast Concrete Masonry Association President James Cain and others.  Photograph by Curtis Hoover
