The 2011 PALAESTRA Leadership Awards


Beaver, David P., Palaestra


In 1990, after much discussion, the Editorial Board of PALAESTRA in conjunction with the journal's publisher, Challenge Publications, Ltd., decided to institute a series of awards relating to the three editorial disciplines covered within PALAESTRA--disability sport, adapted physical education, and therapeutic recreation. It was further determined such awards should reflect leadership in the recipients' fields over nearly a lifetime of endeavors, thus paving the way as role models for the next generation of leaders in their respective fields.

Furthermore, it was felt the practice of heaping accolades upon individuals following their passing, while nice for those near and dear as survivors, did little in allowing the awardees opportunities to bask in the forefront of their professions, let alone giving opportunities for family, friends, and professional colleagues to offer much appreciated congratulations to the recipients. Thus, the Editors maintained awardees should be near to retirement or actually retired, but still with us so as to receive our well wishes for their achievements. To date, all 29 past awards have gone to well-deserving recipients who were able to be in the limelight of their lifetime achievements when receiving their awards.

The PALAESTRA Leadership Awards are given every 10 years, the first group starting in 1991, the second in 2001, and now the third group beginning in the winter of 2011. Those receiving their Leadership Awards in 1991 were: Disability Sport--Charles E. Buell, Jerald M. Jordan, Benjamin H. Lipton, Timothy J. Nugent, and Enuice K. Shriver; Adapted Physical Education--David M. Auxter, G. Lawrence Rarick, Julian U. Stein, Thomas M. Vodola, and Janet A.
