Presentation of the Akers/Grindle Award

The Akers/Grindle award, the most distinguished award issued by the Hall of Fame, was presented to Stacie K. Wagle in recognition of his service to the Hall.  Stacie, a member of the Induction Class of 1998, assisted Alva Grindle with restarting the Hall of Fame in 2005 and served on the Board of Directors.  Stacie's wealth of knowledge on Wabash Valley musicians was critical to the success of the newly-started Hall of Fame.
