ARRL West Gulf Division Award Presentation at HamCom June 10 2017

James

I went to the West Gulf Division meeting at HamCom june 10, 2017 and was surprised to see one of our members getting an Award. Dr. David Woolweaver K5RAV presented James Shugart N5BKL with the “Lifetime Achievement Award” for his consummate volunteering.  Dr. WoolWeaver continued speaking on how important volunteering is for Ham Radio as well as your life.  The efforts and effects that James has had on individuals around him being a volunteer has personified him for this award.  As President of the DARC, I would like to congratulate you on such a deserving award.  To see the video of the presentation Click Here.  To see more pictures Click Here
