Association with the Rhode Island Heritage Hall of Fame and its fellow board members has been a delight, in and of itself. The effort put into the review of the backgrounds and accomplishments of each candidate, for induction to the Hall of Fame, introduces one to the hard work, innovation and expertise of the many Rhode Islanders that have preceded us and who are still with us. Fellow board members are truly a class act! They are dedicated to their responsibilities and put in time and effort, above and beyond, to meet a fair and responsible selection.
