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. This was my seventh time to receive this honor and each time I’m humbled and even surprised. This 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.
