2018 – Cary Plummer
Rothman Award (or commonly called Exhibitor of the Year), but named after Gail and Earl Rothman. If you didn’t know these two people – you missed a lot. Gail and Earl exemplified and demonstrated what a good exhibitor is like – gentle spirits, good sportsmanship and love for the Midwest Region.
This year’s recipient has all those qualities and more. They were nominated by more than one person – so they were top of mind and apparently visibly deserving of the award. This person worked on more than one show, brought humor to the shows and just good, ole plain entertainment.
