We are pleased to announce that our immediate past president, Bill Karn has been recognized as the 2014 recipient of the Program Administrator of the Year Award presented by US Lacrosse.
The Program Administrator of the Year Award is presented to an outstanding administrator of a league or program who runs a program of excellence that upholds the mission and vision of US Lacrosse.
Blackhawk Lacrosse, along with our community as a whole, would like to congratulate Bill on this very deserving award. We are extremely grateful to Bill for his many years of service to the lacrosse community and our youth athletes.
Bill is another great example of the incredibly talented volunteers we have within our organization. When you choose and participate in Blackhawk Lacrosse you can rest assured that we have volunteers like Bill leading the way.
Here is just a small snapshot of the comments presented in Bill’s nomination:
“Personally, I can't think of one person more deserving or of one person that has contributed more to the sport of lacrosse in the greater Richmond area. Further evidence is the Havoc in Hanover Tournament which has grown from 40 teams in 2012 to 57 team competing in 2014. This one-day, end of the spring season event has become an emblematic event for central Virginia lacrosse clubs.”
“I know of no one that is more deserving of this recognition. Since 2006, the club has served thousands of boys and girls (968 registrants in 2013 alone), introduced lacrosse to many parents that have developed a love of the game, mushroomed into 12 Virginia High School League sponsored teams, and has resulted in numerous athletes playing lacrosse in college. Of the founding members of the club, Bill is the only one that has remained with the club. It is only now that our area high schools have lacrosse programs, that Bill is transitioning off the board to spend more time with his family and focus more on coaching”
Bill will be recognized during the President & CEO’s address prior to the Keynote Speaker @ US Lacrosse National Convention in Baltimore, MD on Friday, January 23rd. If you are attending the convention, please join us in congratulating Bill in person.
