The "Guiding Light" award is presented annually by the International Society of Mine Safety Professionals (ISMSP) to an individual who has made contributions to the society and also is recognized for never compromising safety or health in the conduct of activities in the mining industry. Adele is the only attorney in the country who has taken and passed the Certified Mine Safety Professional exam, and was an early member of the ISMSP (dating back to 1996). While I was not privy to the nomination info (the award was a surprise), I was told that it was both for my many hours of pro bono work for ISMSP and the work I have done for the group and its members in providing training and consultation on mine safety and health issues. In addition, Adele was director of government affairs for the National Stone Association, where she served as the liaison with MSHA for many years and also produced safety training videos, and organized safety conferences and training. She is an MSHA-approved trainer, and also serve as assistant administrator of ASSE's Mining Practice Specialty.
