The Thoroughbred chapter periodically awards one of our chapter members a Lifetime Achievement Award.  One of the requirements, among others, is the recipient must have at least a 20-year career in public relations.  It is not presented every year… just at times when the chapter board feels it should be presented.  The last two recipients were Cliff Feltham and Mary Hemlepp.
