As part of the Midwest Regional Section meeting held at Kansas City 2010 Conference & Stage Expo, the section presented several awards.
Ellen White of ETC was presented with the USITT Midwest Founders - Members Award. The award was presented by Richard Arnold, Founder and USITT Past President. Ms. White is well-known throughout the region (and beyond) for giving her time and efforts to make events, especially those involving students, successful.
Ms. White helped honor Fred Foster, CEO of ETC, when Mr. Foster was presented with a Merit Award plaque from the Section for his continuing support of the Section's mission.
Bernie Works, also a Section Founder, presented the Founders Student Award to Jen Seleznow from DePaul University. Ms. Seleznow was unable to attend the award ceremony because she had a show opening, so the award was accepted on her behalf by Shane Kelly, also of DePaul.
