Grewell Accepts Ironman Award

Currently Membership Committee chair as well as serving on the Standards Committee, JD’s contributions - past and present - are indeed those of an Ironman as defined by the award. "Every organization has its unsung heroes who labor quietly in the background, but with great dedication. The Ironman Award, established in 1998 by John Palczuk, recognizes an individual Member who has given time, energy, talent and determination to ASHI over a long period of time and with little recognition.”
