I also had the privilege and honor to accept the Volunteer of

the Year award for C.J. Connelly’s family. CJ received the

award posthumously but was aware his name was submitted

before his passing. His commitment to support funding

students to attend conference and working with the military to

translate their activities to the private sector where major

points for him receiving the award.

tag to allow professionals to easily identify them. This is an

excellent opportunity for professional members to interact
