Going Above and Beyond Award
This is an award that was started by Regional Director, Kathy Calhoun; to honor individuals within the region that have gone above and beyond the call of friendship, regional needs or any other area that is considered going out of ones way to make sure the needs of the region or another individual are taken care of.
This year the award goes to someone who stepped up right away under the new Regional Director to help out and took the lead on a couple of projects. She led the Planning Committee and spearheaded the 4-Ringer show concept, diligently attempting to find locations and club sponsors. She organized a team and followed through with every project. The 2017 Going Above and Beyond Award goes to Allene Keating.
