All,

I want to express my congratulations to ARISS team member Nick Lance, 
KC5KBO.  Nick was just informed that he is the recipient of the ARRL 
Professional Educator of the Year Award.  For ARISS, Nick has been 
instrumental in training the astronauts and Soyuz tourists to get their 
amateur radio licenses.
