After a brief delay due to COVID-19 restrictions, I was honored to be part of the celebration to recognize Dr. Dean Kruckeberg, APR, Fellow PRSA, for receiving PRSA's highest individual award, the Gold Anvil. PRSA announced the award in October during ICON 2021. However, the event was virtual, so while thousands of us were cheering for him in front of our computer screens, he was not able to receive the in-person pomp and circumstance to which he is entitled.On April 19, he received the statue as well as much-deserved praise and a little fun ribbing during a lunch at the Hyatt Centric SouthPark in Charlotte.Guests included PRSA Charlotte chapter members, Dr. Kruckeberg's friends and colleagues, and an impressive group of PRSA Fellows and previous Gold Anvil recipients Dr. Debra Miller, who received the Gold Anvil in 2006, and Joe Epley, who received the Gold Anvil in 2008.
