Mike was honored at the annual SDAO awards banquet on Feb. 7 in Eugene, with several CPRD directors in attendance. A special tribute video was shown. 

Mike has served on the CPRD Board of Directors since 1983, giving him the most seniority. He is a 
self-employed Farmers Insurance agent. He is also chairman of fundraising for Newberg Kiwanis, and has been voted Kiwanian of the Year twice.

Two of the Board's accomplishments that Mike is especially proud of during his tenure are the creation of Chehalem Senior Center and Chehalem Glenn Golf Course.
