Susie Davis

2024 Director's Choice Award


Awarded to Susie Davis

How many women do you know who could get up on the risers a few months after being trampled by a horse?  Or compete at regionals a week after a serious car accident (and of course bedazzling her sling to match her costume!)?  Or complete a couple years later after going through chemo treatments?  Most of us don't know anyone who could do all that - unless, of course, you know Susie Davis!  Susie is this year's Director's Choice award because of her tenacity to overcome serious roadblocks and still get up on stage and give it her all.  You just can't keep a good woman down - not if her name is Susie Davis!!

Maggy Kantz

2022 Director's Choice Award


Awarded to Maggy Kantz

Maggy Kantz was presented with our Director's Choice award by Dr Sally Kelley.  During the presentation Sally noted that she could always count on Maggy to be one of the first members off the paper on a new song.  She also learns her choreography early and works hard at perfecting both her moves and her voice accuracy.  When Sally is ready to direct she can always count on Maggy to be in place and ready to perform.  She sets a very good example to fellow members on what it means to take personal accountability for her performance!

Sue Pelley

2022 Sweet Adeline of the Year


Awarded to Sue Pelley

We are pleased to announce that Sue Pelley has been awarded our SAOTY award for 2022!  Sue has been a very integral part of our chorus for quite some time.  She has served on just about every office of our board including serving as President for 10 years!  She has also been our bass section leader for several years.  Sue is so very supportive of every member of our chorus.  Her friendly smile is always a welcoming site at rehearsals.  She goes out of her way to make each and every member feel important and works hard to make everyone feel included.  She willingly shares her musical knowledge and talents helping others perform at their best level.  While she served as President she was not eligible for this award - so her selection has been a very long time in the making!
