Thanks for all of your efforts, John. Personally, I am thrilled to see my colleague and frequent co-instructor Blaine T. Bettinger on the list of award winners this year! He deserves much recognition in our field. (As does Debbie Kennett.) Congrats to everyone who placed, all well-deserved as well!
