The Regional Executives Award
The David Roethel Member Achievement Award
David Roethel Member Achievement Award was donated in 1963 when he, as
Regional Executive, felt that there should be recognition of members of
the region (not officers or committee chairpersons), who gave
unstintingly of their time and effort in contribution to the many
activities sponsored by the region. This award contains the names of
individuals who are some of the "unsung heroes" of the region. They
have worked behind the scenes in many different capacities, frequently
without recognition, to see that the programs have succeeded. Previous winners include:
The Most Valuable Player "MVP" Award
Most Valuable Player "MVP" is awarded to individual who has rendered
outstanding service to the Region while acting in an official capacity.
In essence, this award is intended to recognize an individual who is
ineligible for the Member Achievement award. The donor of this award
hoped that this "award would fill the void that exists for those
hard-working individuals who are always there, who continually serve at
an outstanding level, and whose only recognition is an occasional ‘Thank
you’ if we think of it." Previous winners include:
The Public Relations Award
Public Relations Award is presented annually to a person, ‘normally a
driver’, who has, in the opinion of the Board of Directors has done the
most to promote the Region’s activities. Previous winners include:
The David Morrell Award
Which is given to an active National Chief Steward who has exhibited
outstanding performance and dedication to the sport and the highest
principles. The winner is selected by the Chairman of the Stewards
and the Executive Stewards.
The Roger Johnson Spirit of the Sport Award.
This award goes to the SCCA Solo community member that brings the
spirit of fun to their fellow members, as symbolized by the message
engraved on the perpetual award: "Johnson Spirit of the Sport Award,
presented annually by the Royal Order of the Sheep to a member of the
flock that upholds the spirited virtues of FUN, CAMARADARIE, and
TOMFOOLERY.” This award is named in honor of the inaugural recipient,
the Exalted Grand Shepherd, Roger E. Johnson. The award is selected
annually by the previous three recipients.
