Silver Medal Award: Virginia (Tim) Craig
|Henk Borsje, District 6 Director, accepts the award for Tim Craig.|
Your efforts in promoting the American Rhododendron Society and the genus have been exceptional. As District 6 Director you ably represented the interests of your district, facilitated communication between the chapters, and actively supported and encouraged new chapters. You distinguished yourself on the ARS Research Foundation and the ARS Public Relations Committee. In representing the Society, you have always focused on the goal of increasing membership.
Your leadership in chapter projects such as the "Plants for Members" became an example followed by chapters along the East Coast and Canada. You were instrumental in the distribution of scions of rare and commercially unobtainable plants through your connections and travels to these chapters.
For your major accomplishments, service, and enthusiasm, the American Rhododendron Society is proud to present the Silver Medal to Virginia (Tim) Craig, May 15, 2004, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
