Covid-19: Here's How We're Working to Support the Hudson Valley

Doherty-Package Pavement Company Scholarship

Package Pavement Company Inc. Red Wing Properties Inc. and Stormville Trucking Inc. began with the formation of Package Pavement Company by Walter G. and Marion J. Doherty in 1951. The company moved to Dutchess County in 1953 and has prospered here.

Walter Doherty's love was teaching. His first job after college was teaching children with tuberculosis. Although he gave up the school setting he never gave up teaching. He imparted knowledge to his children grandchildren friends and employees. Doherty family members were encouraged to believe in and love learning.
