The first LMSA Mentor of the year award was given to Dr. Philip De Chavez.  Dr. De Chavez was our Executive Director for many years until his passing.  He was a great mentor for the organization and the force that helped the national-core from year to year.  The Mentor of the Year award is named in his honor.  It was a privilege to have worked with him.  We all miss him very much and will strive to make the organization better to serve others.
