The Edward L.

Ed Jenkins served as the Barnstable Plumbing inspector for forty years, having a positive influence on his fellow inspectors, plumbers and gasfitters he encountered, and many others on Cape Cod and beyond. Ed was truly a gentleman, always professional, committed to his work and additional distinguished service within his community, such as his dedication to the Shriners. March 2015, upon Ed’s retirement, CCPGA presented him with a citation declaring the creation of the award in his namesake. The CCPGA is pleased to recognize the first recipient of the Edward L.
