Larry Schmitz has raised the IPA awards bar to new levels. He has surpassed the century point level earning him a very special award: Lifetime Emerald. Our chapter is lucky to have such dedicated membership and those like Larry who participate and give back to our chapter and the association year after year. We owe Larry much more than this small token of appreciation so the next time you see him say "thanks". Great job Larry and to all our award recipients for 2008!
