We received this email in response to the Who’s News Item on David Ross, Director of the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau, Missouri being named as the Recipient of the Charles A. McElravy Award by the International Association of Assembly Managers, and thought it merited reprinting in FacBlog.
I have had the pleasure of having David Ross serve on the Advisory Council of the Cape Girardeau Convention and Visitors Bureau for more than 7 years now. David is an invaluable resource. There are so many things that he quietly does behind the scenes that very few people are ever aware of. He has been a strong supporter and great friend of the Cape Girardeau Storytelling Festival from its inception. I was thrilled to see that David had been named as the recipient of this prestigious international award. He and his outstanding team at the Show Me Center do great work and have and continue to elevate the quality and variety of entertainment that is afforded to people from throughout the southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, western Kentucky, northwest Tennessee and northeast Arkansas area. Congratulations David! Well-deserved recognition for a commensurate professional!
With kind regards,
Cape Girardeau Convention and Visitors Bureau
