It was a humbling experience for the judges to read about what the finalists have accomplished and contributed to our industry and profession, along with how valuable they are to their associates and customers. There is no bigger honor than to be recognized by peers, and it’s awesome that the MSL Society, a not-for-profit organization, put on a special evening to celebrate individuals who were definitely worthy of these awards.
