LSI President’s Award Winners

 

PRESIDENT’S AWARD

In 1979, Suzanne Allen, as president of LSI, instituted a tradition of giving a President’s Award to an LSI member who, during the course of the previous year, had made a significant contribution, in the president’s opinion alone, to the president, to LSI or both. The criteria is to give the award to someone other than an LSI elected officer since the elected officers’ obligations to LSI are mandated by virtue of their office.
