On March 25th 2007, Kurt was honored as the Sports Medicine Person of the Year Award from the Iowa Athletic Directors Association. Thanks to the generosity of a great friend, Kurt and I were able to both attend the ceremony in Des Moines and then spend a nice evening alone. The new athletic director at Clinton High School nominated Kurt for this award last summer. In November Kurt was notified that he had been choosen to receive this award. We were given a nice meal and then attended the awards ceremony. It was a nice time for Kurt as he was able to see several other people that he knows and has worked with over the years.
