J&R Tile Named Winner of NTCA Community Impact Award

Jackson, MS, April 29, 2024-At Coverings, The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) introduced a new award to honor members who donate their time, material, and energy in their community by bringing the community together with the use of tile.  

The inaugural Community Impact Award was presented to NTCA Five-Star contractor J&R Tile for their involvement in the Uvalde Love Project-Tile Therapy initiative. Spearheaded by Wanda Montemayor of Community Art Therapy, the project aimed to bring the Uvalde community together following a mass school shooting, initiating the healing process through collaborative tile art.

J&R Tile contributed its time, expertise, and resources to the project, playing a pivotal role in the project’s success. It provided invaluable consultation on product selection, procured materials, enlisted volunteer contractors, prepared the installation site, and facilitated the transportation of custom mosaics from Austin to Uvalde, Texas. Terry Hall, Ardex Americas, introduced J&R Tile to the project.
