2011 – Nancy Hitzeman
Midwest Region Exhibitor of the Year Award – 2011
As the first recipient of the Earl Rothman Memorial Exhibitor of the Year Award, Nancy Hitzeman exhibits regularly, is involved in show production, and promotes CFA, the region and its clubs. Nancy has gone above and beyond in all aspects of showing. While campaigning GP, NW Acadiacoons Franklin Lodge (Oscar), she promoted CFA and helped our Midwest Region clubs and shows. She always showed sportsmanship and gratitude. And she is ALWAYS friendly and willing to help newcomers to the fancy.
For her graciousness in her campaign this year, her support of her breed and welcoming of exhibitors new and old, Nancy Hitzeman is the first winner – and definitely a deserving winner – of the Rothman Award.
