Frontier Refinery to be recognized for wellness efforts

Frontier El Dorado Refinery is one of two Health Champion Award winners who will be recognized Friday at the Kansas State Fair.

Gov. Mark Parkinson will recognize Frontier and Joan Bolt, a physical education teacher in Norton.

The award was developed to recognize and promote exemplary contributions to fitness in Kansas. Frontier supports health and well-being through a comprehensive wellness program, according to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. KDHE said Frontier recognizes that empowering and supporting employees to take charge of their health leads to cost savings in health care, healthier families, more productive workers, personal achievement, improved quality of life and increased community participation.
