Stefan's Award

Last Monday we traveled to State College for Stefan's work conference. At night we went to Beaver Stadium to the award's banquet. Stefan received the Ted Moses High Hat Award. Here is a description of the award from the PWEA website:

The High Hat Award is given by the PWEA in honor of Ted Moses, the first Secretary of the Association. This is a service award given to members who have distinguished themselves while working to promote the Association and its programs. The original High Hat, purchased in a Philadelphia pawnshop in 1935, is the Association's most prized and priceless possession. The names of past recipients are lettered upon the hat, and the annual ceremony accompanying the presentation of this award has become a tradition at the PWEA Annual Awards Banquet. Because the original high hat had no additional space for award recipient's names, Ned and Marti Sams purchased another high hat. The Sams' have graciously donated this second hat to the Association so that the names of future award recipients will also appear on a High Hat.
Award Criteria
Recipients should be a current PWEA member in good standing who have distinguished themselves through the promotion of the Association and its programs. Typically, 4 (four) High Hats are awarded. One from each of the three Sections and one At-Large. A WEF Representative attending the Awards Banquet should generally also be awarded as the Awards Committee deems appropriate.

We had a fun spending time with Stefan and meeting some of the people he works with. Taylor and Jordan were a hit on Monday when we visited all the displays from the vendors.
