DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD HONOREES
Clemmer & David Montague
"Clemmer and David Montague are the first recipients of the JRA's Distinguished Service Award. Both of them, each during their terms as JRA president, led the organization with skill, a steady hand, and a view to make JRA better. And their efforts did not stop when their terms expired. They have conceived and led many trips, both nationally and internationally, with great preparation, knowledge and charm. They care for craft and craft artists as the extensive and well-chosen collection clearly shows. They are tireless leaders, teachers and great friends; therefore the first JRA Distinguished Service Award could not go to a more deserving pair."
- Giselle Huberman, President
