The Lifetime Achievement Award was instituted in 2014 to honour a special member of the cast and long-standing member of the MWOS Board of Directors, Susan Colby-Germinario. Having joined in 1977 and continuing to serve the Society with dedication after more than 37 years, she has set the gold-standard for volunteerism. Without her, MWOS would not be.
Over the years, several members of the Society have been honoured with special awards:
Harry and Doris Norris Award (named after our two founding members) is presented by the Board of Directors to MWOSers who have demonstrated particular industry as a volunteer for a specific production, above and beyond the call of duty.
David Lambert Memorial Award (in memory of a very special MWOSer) is presented by the Board of Directors to a new member showing David-like characteristics: enthusiasm and energy.
Gary Atkinson Memorial Award instituted in 2013 (in memory of another special MWOSer) is presented to a particularly deserving cast member by his/her peers for being supportive and congenial.
