The Meritorious Service Award recognizes Volunteers in our sport who contributed a lot over a period of 10 or more years. About two to three volunteers were chosen each year from the late 1970's to the late 1990's. Thus the list below includes a total of 50+. Those previously chosen received a small 20" canoe paddle with an engraved plate. The selection process stopped around 1998 - and has not been renewed until now.
USA Whitewater Slalom will present the Meritorious Service Award, for ten or more years of outstanding service, at the US National Championships, on August 28th at the Kern River, Miracle Hot Springs in Bakersfield, California. Meritorious Service Award Nominations are being accepted through May 31, 2005 and should include a description of the individual's work within the sport of whitewater slalom. Please send nominations to Hannah Larsen.
Here are the Meritorious Service Award recipients from the late 1970's to the late 1990's. The first to be named were Susan Chamberlin, John Connet, Bill Endicott, Dave Kurtz, and Jim Raleigh. These five volunteers were followed by:
