The St. Louis Region SCCA was awarded the Tom Burke Award for Large regions (membership of 401-800) at the SCCA National Convention Saturday, Jan. 21
The Tom Burke Awards are presented to Regions for exemplary efforts to activate and grow the SCCA. Formerly named the Chairman’s Award prior to 1987, one award is given to the RE of a Region in each of the four Size categories from the preceding year. The awards are given in honor of SCCA member Tom Burke, whose love of SCCA and passion for what we do not only ignited in others a desire to become SCCA members, but also served as a call to engage in SCCA activities. Mr. Burke’s ambassadorial approach to prospective and current members served as a model for the spirit of the SCCA.
Said Mike Kenney, St. Louis’ Regional Executive during 2022, “The award is based on a number of factors relating to membership factors and effectiveness in providing motorsports options for their members.
“While my name as RE is noted on the award it is obviously an award to all of those in leadership positions on the BoD, program chairs and committees and our many volunteers. Glad to see our Region recognized for our efforts. Thanks to all who contributed to this award.”
