Dear Colleagues,

As the 2016 winner of this award, I am helping the Southern Nursery
Association to organize nominees for the 2017 Porter Henegar Award.   The
recipient is selected annually by fellow research / extension colleagues in
recognition of the nominees outstanding contributions to ornamental
horticultural research, and more specifically, their service to SNA.

The process is outlined in the attached Word document, but at this time I
would like to solicit nominees from you, as well as anyone else (outside of
the NC-1186 group) who you think is deserving of this award.

I will close nominations on the 31st October, and compile all nominees into
a ballot which will then be send to all active past recipients (listed in
the document).  So please consult this list before nominating someone.
Please also provide details of the person with your nomination.  If you can
provide a recent summary (2-page) CV, that would be most helpful in
ensuring the consideration of your nominee.

Many thanks for helping me get a list of worthy nominees together.
