2010 Hering Mission of Service Award
You know a man in your community who stands out
by living his life in Mission
Here is your chance to honor that man!
Each Center must identify Award recipient by January 5th.
Ron Hering was one of the three founders of the MKP. At the MKP
Conference in February, the 12th Annual Ron Hering Mission of Service
Awards will be presented to one man or group of men (such as an
Integration Group) from each Center who is breathing life into a
Mission of Service outside the MKP.
This is the Project's way of honoring those among us who are living
their missions through action in the world. The Award is a very
handsome plaque, and one award will be presented for each Center.
Many centers also sponsor their award winner to go to the conference
and receive the award in person!
The process the centers use for nominating a man or men is left to
each center -- each having it's own system for nomination and
selection. The Elder Community has stepped up in many centers to
spear head this effort.
As Mission Coordinators our needs for Ron Hering Award Winners are:
1. Recipient Name
2. Recipients Animal Name & Mission
3. Recipients Contact Information
4. Center Name
5. Short summary of the mans work - less than 30 words - to be
read at the awards ceremony
6. One paragraph description of man's work in the world for
which he is being honored - less than 150 words.
7. Brief personal bio of recipient - < 50 words -- not needed if
the award is given to a group.
8. Good color photos of the man or men, if possible have one
taken for this purpose. The image should then be transferred to a
digital format, either JPG, or GIF. The digital image should be
within the range of 3 x 4 inches, either in portrait or landscape.
9. Permission from the man to make this information public at
the Awards Ceremony.
Please be advised that unless we receive the required information by
the January 5th deadline, we cannot guarantee that your Center's
nominee will be included in the award ceremonies at the MKP
Conference in February.
When your local award recipients are eventually selected, ask them to
RSVP the Mission Coordinators by January 5 concerning whether they
can attend the award ceremonies at the MKP Conference on Friday,
February 4, 2011. Please notify potential candidates of that
possibility when you invite or confirm nominations. Attendance is
