Nominations Open for Knight Distinguished Service Award
Each year, the ARRL offers an award to recognize someone who has served admirably as an ARRL Section Manager. The Knight Distinguished Service Award recognizes exceptionally notable contributions by a Section Manager to the health and vitality of the League. The first such award was presented to Joe T. Knight, W5PDY (now SK) in 2003 -- for whom the award was named -- in recognition of his exemplary service not only as the ARRL Section New Mexico Section Manager for more than a quarter century, but also for his willingness to share his knowledge and skills.
The Knight Distinguished Service Award may be awarded to an ARRL Section Manager who has distinguished himself or herself in accordance with the following ideals:
- Exceptionably notable contributions over and extended period of time within his or her Section and beyond.
- Demonstrated efforts that have contributed to the health and vitality of the ARRL and its Field Organization.
- Displayed actions that are in the spirit of the unselfish contributions of Joe T. Knight, W5PDY.
Nominations may be made by any ARRL member and shall be accompanied by a narrative of the accomplishments of the nominee identifying the long term contributions of the nominee to ARRL and its Field Organization. The deadline for nominations is April 30. Please send nominations and supporting material for this award to Steve Ewald, WV1X via e-mail at ARRL Headquarters or by phone at 860-594-0265.
