Meet our Q3 Capital to the Core recipients – Mark Barnett & Jerry Bailey!
Mark and Jerry are both a part of the Capital Sand Company team! These two gentlemen were nominated for a Capital to the Core Safety award due to their selfless actions on the river last year. On September 16th, 2022, Captain Mark Barnett and Jerry Bailey rescued a man floating in the river without a floatation device. They were able to get the individual aboard the tow boat safely until the Missouri State Highway Patrol arrived on scene. Mark and Jerry’s commitment to safety goes beyond this incident. Mark has 30+ years of experience operating tow boats on the Missouri River, always remaining attentive to his surroundings while working on the water. Although Jerry was new to working on the water at the time of the incident, his willingness to help in this situation is commendable.
