June 1 at the Weyburn Oil Show, two people will be recognized for outstanding contributions to the petroleum industry in Saskatchewan and Canada.

One of those persons who will be inducted into the Saskatchewan Petroleum Industry Hall of Fame, is Shaunavon native, Reg Greenslade.

Reg grew up in Shaunavon and his father ran Greenslade's Welding and Construction.

He talked about how it feels to receive such an honor, saying "What's really special about it is the fact that it's in Saskatchewan. The province, and in particular, Shaunavon  had a big influence on me growing up. Ya know, my Dad was a big influence, as well as my brother. I 'm sure a lot of people are familiar with Grant. Ya know, my whole family and, of course, my wife has been a huge influence."

Reg is currently a director of Andora Energy Corporation, Grandview Exploration Inc., New Wave Energy Services Ltd., Fountain Tire, Longshore Resources Ltd., Allied Energy Corp., Spartan Delta Corp., and Cleantek Industries Inc.
