I have been nominating him every year since I became a member of the AAOMPT! I owe most of my success to him. He mentored me in fellowship while I was studying at University of St. Augustine. He brought me on as faculty at D'Youville College when he left, and then again at Daemen to teach in the undergrad DPT program, and as a mentor for the MDT and Daemen Fellowship in OMPT programs. I use him as a model for success, ethics, and work ethic. Congrats Ron!
