The award recognizes individuals who share an extraordinary commitment to helping others. Weaver, who has been employed by Upstate Niagara Cooperative since June 1996, has not experienced a chargeable accident since October 2006 and has recorded 300,000 accident-free miles since joining the dairy cooperative.
He began doing mission work in 2009 when he joined a team that went on two trips to Honduras to build churches. On the second trip, he was re-routed to Miami because of the political instability in Honduras. That didn't stop Weaver, as he helped rebuild a Methodist church in Miami that Hondurans attend. He has been back to that church on three separate occasions as a lay minister. During his last trip, he helped plan and lead another trip to New Orleans to assist with rebuilding following Hurricane Katrina.
