does is to recognize the outstanding careers and professional
achievements of our members and of individuals in the industry
who have significantly contributed to our profession. Each

Tharon Musser, ESTA, Strong Entertainment Lighting, and many
other individuals and organizations have been recognized by
the membership of USITT.
