Considered me … Inducted and Grateful.

Fox Valley Arts Hall of Fame held their Gala on April 3rd, where I could finally receive (after the Big Delay) my Hall of Fame Award.

Words are inadequate to express the gratitude I have for my family and friends who came from far and near to celebrate at the Fox Valley Arts Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Friday night. It was an amazingly unforgettable evening! But more importantly, my gratitude is for who they are, what they have meant and continue to mean to me along this journey. From the bottom of my heart —Thank you🙏

Fox Valley Arts Hall of Fame acknowledges artists who meet the following criteria:

  • Association with the Fox Valley by birth, education, residence, or service and
