His action certainly saved her from serious injury or eating in the fire.

The MEA Energy Association (MAA) is honored to present Hankels and Macy’s laborer Garrett Lekander with the Lifetime Achievement Award to save lives.

On Saturday afternoon, November 21, 2020, Garrett Lekander saw a house on fire as he was leaving work. He knocked on the door and saw that an old woman was in the house and could not open it. He went into the house and told her that she had to leave. She did not want to leave the house, so she took Garrett out. The house was destroyed, and the owner lost everything in the fire. His action certainly saved her from serious injury or eating in the fire.

“It is a privilege to give this eternal life to Garrett,” said John Gan, senior vice president of MEA. These awards serve to highlight those who have been called upon in the energy industry and who have made a difference when given the opportunity to do so.

Henkels & McCoy Inc. Founded in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, it has been a member of the MEA since 1997.
