Recipient's comments: "I really didn't think this award was that much of a big deal. I just thought of it as something to add to the other things I do. Outdoors is my life;it's really all I do. I never knew there was an award, the director just put my name in. I'm really surprised that you're recognizing me for this. (Dr. Francis M. "Skip" Fennell) dragged me over to the public relations department at Western Maryland and made me tell them I won the award.
