2014 – Cathy Dunham
Midwest Region Exhibitor of the Year Award – 2014
This year the Earl Rothman Exhibitor of the Year is being changed to the Rothman award to honor both Gail and Earl and their contributions to cats.
Here is a quote from the person who made the nomination
“Over many years, this year’s winner has been a stalwart, hardworking, and extremely supportive member of Region 6.
From exhibiting hers and her husband’s beautiful cats and always showing good sportsmanship, to welcoming newbies and show visitors, to entry clerking and benching shows, to clerking at shows in both planned and emergency situations, to producing shows, banquets, awards books, and on-the-road-again videos for the region, to managing the youth program, she has endlessly given of her time, energy, and effort to support the region.
I have found this individual to be an incredibly supportive, helpful, and gracious person who supports our region even through her own difficult times. She is always willing to lend a hand, answer questions, make herself available to assist in any possible way, and has a amazingly positive attitude that makes her say “we’ll find a way to get it done for both the cats, and our region””.
I would personally say that this person has indeed been my right and sometimes my left hand and responsible of much of what makes the Midwest special.
Please join me in congratulating the 2017 CFA National Award Program Chairperson, Cathy Dunham
