DAVID PECK PHOTO Cow|ey news Welch inducted to hall of fame DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 548-6901 George Welch received a phone call on Feb. 23 from the National Fed- eration of High School Activities As- sociation in Indianapolis, and was in- formed that he is being inducted into their hall of fame in July. He has received many awards in Utah for music, has served on many boards and committees, and has been a member of the National Federation of High Schools as Music Chairman. He has functioned as a critic for arti- cles submitted for their organization, and has taught music and been not only an example as a teacher to many students throughout his career, but an example of humor, moral charac- e.randeoe,t;lok up to and try 'lafe th.M his personal, ife and his career: This induction into the hall of fame is the ultimate award and reward for his years of service. In an e-mail to family and friends, George's wife, Bonnie, said he knew he had been nominated for this award, but never in a million years thought he would actually receive it. The local association submitted his name and it was sent to a "blind" panel that looked at the qualifications of all the nomi- nees without knowing who they were evaluating. Three were chosen from the nomi- nations submitted by each state in the country and sent to the "main com- mittee," where George Welch was se- lected. Bonnie said he is absolutely blown away that he would be picked from all the many people in the country who have done so much for children, but she was not surprised because when it comes to kids, he has been completely unselfish in working for their welfare. Bonnie said that they would fly to San Diego on July 8, and the award would be presented to him at a banquet on July 11. Some others who have been in- ducted into this hall of fame are Chris Evert, Danny Ainge, Herschel Walk- er, Merlin OIsen, Ty Detmer, Jesse Owens and more. Often the ones se- lected are athletes, so it is unusual for a music person to receive this award. In George's brother's e-mail, Nick wrote, "This is fantasic. What a great honor for George. It comes well- earned, for a man who is very hum- ble and would give you the shirt off his back, especially if you are between the ages of 3 and 33. He has given his entire life for the good of the children, youth and students from elementary to college and those working on their higher education. This definitely is a feather in his cap." George was born and raised in Cowley, graduating from Cowley High School. He attended Utah State Uni- versity in Logan, Utah. He returned to Cowley and taught music for a year or so before he went to Utah to begin his career there. His parents are the late Art and Mary Whitney Welch. Byron Hews Cline auction raises $14,000 GARY GRUELL 548-2220 The Benefit Dinner and Auction for Mark Cline was a great success with 240 people attending for dinner. The din- ner and auction proceeds were about $14,000, according Tami Hubbell. I did get the opportunity to meet Mark Cline and his wife, Patty, pose near their horse corral at their home near Frannie. Mark and his family. The good remarks about Mark that I had heard from many others were correct. He and his family seem to be very nice. The auction saw three horses up for bid, along with a baby goat and a puppy. Many horse related items, jewelry and artwork were also donated. The generous donations from local merchants and private individuals con- tributed to the huge success of the ben- efit with all the proceeds going directly to the appreciative and humbled Cline family. Organizers would like to thank everyone who helped make the event a success. Traditional printing techniques demonstrations at Bighorn Canyon Visitor Center March 13 Mike Parker is passion- ate about his craft. He wants to spread the word about tra- ditional printing techniques before the knowledge of this profession is forgotten.

Senior center chatter Kane history program Tuesday at Center When the Newcomers Club met for cards at the Senior Center last Thurs- day, Feb. 25, there was a bit different atmosphere. Things seemed more sub- dued because so many members were absent due to either health issues, go- ing to regionals in River- ton or to state wrestling in Casper. Both sides had only two tables of players each. Members still enjoyed themselves, but not quite as boisterously as usual. On the pinochle side, member Garnet Sorenson earned the highest score of the af- ternoon and also provided homemade caramels for ev- eryone to enjoy. In bridge, none other than Arlene Ross ended up on top again. Imagine that! All participating mem- bers enjoyed the delicious cake that was provided for them by enterprising staff member, Marlene Gould. Don't forget that Art Art Schatz shared his memories of Kane Thursday at the BHC NRA Visitor's Center. Schatz will be making a presentation on the histo- ry of Kane next Tuesday, March 9.
