McClurg receives NYS most prestigious civilian award

Senator John A. DeFrancisco recently presented the New York State Senate Liberty Award to contractor Scott McClurg during a special medal ceremony at his Syracuse office.The New York State Senate Liberty Award recognizes citizens for their exceptional, heroic or humanitarian acts and achievements.

Scott McClurg, President and Owner of McClurg Remodeling and Construction Services was honored for his dedication to a local family in need and his service to the community.

The Luchsinger family of Onondaga Hill suffered a series of trials when their dairy farm was destroyed by fire and then father Jamie Luchsinger was diagnosed with ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease.

Moved by their story, Scott enlisted the support of his team and more than 40 local companies who generously donated their time, labor and supplies to renovate the Luchsinger's thirty year old home. The newly renovated home is now handicapped-accessible for Jamie.

I am pleased to present Scott McClurg with the New York State Senate Liberty Award for his selfless dedication to a project that helped change the lives of the Luchsinger family, said DeFrancisco. Scott and his team of volunteers should be commended for the many nights and weekends they spent working to completely renovate the Luchsinger's home so Jamie can continue to live comfortably with his family.

I am honored to accept the New York State Senate Liberty Award and do so on behalf of the entire team of volunteers who generously gave their time, talents and financial support to help a local family most of us didn't even know, said McClurg. We just wanted to make things a little easier for the Luchsinger family to stay together and found they gave us even more by opening their hearts and home to each of us. Our hope is that others will be inspired by our efforts to give back to the community and make a difference in someone's life because the need is so great.
