PGMS also honored its Immediate Past President, Walt Bonvell, CGM, who passed away in July, with the E. Earl Wilson Award; the pinnacle achievement award for any PGMS member. Honorees not only gave their time, talents, and nurturing support to PGMS, but also gave back to their profession and strengthened their industry. A dedicated member of the PGMS since 1999, Walt served on both the general and executive Board and was well known for his enthusiasm and smile. He was always the first to welcome a new member into PGMS and to make sure they were introduced to all the other leaders, past and present, of the Society.
