The Hibbing Area Chamber of Commerce in Hibbing, Minnesota, recognized SEH mining engineer Julie Marinucci with a President’s Award at its 112th annual dinner. The event was attended by hundreds of businesses and political leaders from across northern Minnesota.
The award recognizes Julie’s “distinguished service, positive mentorship and extraordinary commitment to the Chamber and community.”
Julie attributes her success and the drive that she has today to simple life lessons she was taught as a child.
“My parents taught me to always look around and see how I can be helpful,” she says. “I have found I can move community visions into actions with my leadership and project management skills.”
Julie has been involved in the mining community for more than 15 years, serving in mining engineering and reclamation and pit operation roles, as well as undertaking strategic initiatives.
“Her community involvement is remarkable …,” said Lory Fedo, Hibbing Chamber of Commerce president. “She is extremely gutsy and willing to take on the tough stuff.”
Being part of the community and working to make it great are what Julie likes most about her role.
“Serving the community is a rewarding experience, I encourage everyone to look around and see where you can engage,” Julie says.
