2022 Hall of Fame Special Award Winners

2022 Hall of Fame Special Award Winners

Our 2nd “Special Award” winner for the Pardi Award, for outstanding dedication and contributions to the success of the NEAR Hall of Fame. Your 2022 winner NEAR President Rich Goucher.
Rich Goucher has risen through the ranks by first facilitating the seating, meal orders, and other duties as a Board Member.
He now serves on the HOF Executive Committee and oversees the Awards, Identities, copy for the HOF Ad Book, and his very capable and talented team.
The waters were rather rough thru the pandemic and we missed a year. Since then, the HOF came roaring back and is again on solid ground.
Rich works hard and puts on a lot of miles each year to make sure NEAR and the HOF are successful.
