Laughlin Award

Each year, Sycamore ISC presents the Laughlin Award to a club member or group of skaters, chosen by the board of directors. The recipient is recognized for giving his or her time and talents to the betterment of the club while encouraging fellow members, working on individual skating skills and serving the community. The award is named in honor of Michele Laughlin, a former skating club member and international pairs competitor, and her family, who helped form the Sycamore Club in 1982.

Meg Strickland received the 2016 Laughlin Award for her dedication and service to the club. She was a huge help with our annual show, new website, Learn to Skate program and junior board.
