It’s A Major Award!

“It’s a major award!” That’s what Darren McGavin’s signature role, Mr. Parker, proudly proclaimed to friends and family in the 1983 movie A Christmas Story. He was proud of his accomplishment and of the leg lamp that recognized them. What a great movie!

On January 1st, I received a major award as well. Arriving in my email inbox that day was a notification from Microsoft that I was awarded the prestigious Microsoft MVP Award for SQL Server.┬áThis was my seventh time to receive this honor and each time I’m humbled and even surprised.┬áThis is no “leg lamp” award and I certainly don’t take it lightly.

If you’re not familiar with the Microsoft MVP Program, here’s a short excerpt from the Microsoft MVP web site.

These exceptional community leaders come from a wide range of backgrounds. They are teachers, artists, doctors, engineers, as well as technologists, who actively share their high-quality, real-world technical expertise with the community and with Microsoft.

Thanks Microsoft! And it’s great to be a part of a such a vibrant and active community.
