The "David Gibbs Achievement Award" also honors one of our own past members, who passed away suddenly in 1999. David Gibbs was another outstanding member of the Society. David had an uncanny way of seeing things from other points of view, which always kept us "on track" in our executive committee meetings, and when we made decisions concerning the club and our activities. He was our "rock," which kept us anchored to reality. This award will be our eternal recognition of his support and dedication to AOAS.
Dale Hall has been an exemplary member of AOAS. His dedication to the Society is enviable by all other members who will forever strive to attain the same dedication shown by Dale. He is also quite an accomplished observer of the skies, and his love of astronomy dates back to his childhood. He is a most valued member of the Society, and with this award, the Arkansas Oklahoma Astronomical Society says, Thanks, Dale!
