This one was the most difficult. Based on the nominations submitted and discussion with the Executive Officer, we are awarding this illustrious award to Yuri Maschnost, PhD. This has been said about Yuri: “Not only is Yuri fun to post with but he brings fun and excitement into a Joint Post.” “His writing contributions thus far are thoroughly enjoyable to read and very well written (grammar, spelling, context, flow, etc ...). He seems to enjoy developing his character slowly, yet surely.”
