Don Worley presents Ron Ryan Award to Mulie Sheets
during the 2015 Artistry In Wood show 
"Tonight's recipient of the Ron Ryan Award is truly an ambassador of woodcarving in the local and surrounding communities. Almost any place I go, people will describe this person and ask me if I know this gentleman. I immediately know who they are talking about. Most mornings he can be found in a restaurant giving away carvings to kids and adults. You might see him at a carving show, outdoor festival, or almost anywhere promoting woodcarving and Artistry In Wood. This person has served many years as President and Vice President of the Brukner Nature Center carving club where he kept members actively carving projects. He served our country in Korea and was awarded the Purple Heart. This gentleman is a patriot through and through. It is my pleasure to announce that my friend, Mulie Sheets is tonight's recipient of the Ron Ryan Award."
