Congratulations Andy!

Ever since our first alliance in 1999, I have been very impressed with the way you represent the ideals of FIRST. It would be hard for me to list all the great things that you have done that I have witnessed. DJ obviously did a great job of this and I'm sure he has witnessed many more. It would be great to see the submission posted in the white paper section so everyone can appreciate all that you have done, not just for your team, but for the FIRST community.

Hope to see you again soon.

Talking You're fantastic!

Andy -

Live it up! Winning this award is a once in a lifetime experience. I remembered feeling like an instant hero in one day. A celebrity in the lives of mathematics, science and technology! It is toooooo cooooool!

Absorb every minute. Write down your thoughts - keep them for a "rainy day", for this is truly the greatest experience and you need to remember it forever!

Andy, I am so proud of you!

Kyle

Let me join in the long list of people congratulating you Andy. This thread alone should be a sign that you are more than deserving of the award. You have touched and inspired so many people, including me. I look at your team as an example and a model for all FIRST teams. I constantly wonder why we can't be more like the Technokats. You are the reason team 45 and many of the other Indiana teams are so successful. I strive to be as good a mentor as you are. See you soon, and don't be surprised if I call or email you for advice this summer.

As a few others have said, this means you can never quit FIRST

I had the chance to congratulate Andy when his winning of the Woodie Flowers award was announced, but want to congratulate him here as well. Andy has done so much to make TechnoKats what the team is today. He joined the team in 1998. and those who were around at the time know that the previous few years were not good ones for our team. Andy's various skills, including engineering, game strategy, and coaching helped us win the Championship in '98. There were others, to be sure, including Mark Coors who designed the arm on the machine, and Tim Railey, the team's lead teacher since 1992. Also we had an awesome driver and equally awesome button pusher, and many other people too numerous to mention who contributed to our success in '98. Still, Andy was one of the most important people in our competition success in '98 and subsequent years, and Andy may well have done more to "bring the team together" than any other person after some not-so-good years for our team.

Since then, Andy has turned TechnoKats in a team known throughout the FIRST community for helping other teams. He publishes our designs, gives away spare parts to other teams who need them, and helps new teams get started, and not just those near Kokomo, Indiana. Also, on a number of occasions he has been seen in other teams' pits helping them fix their robots when they need and want help. Andy is responsible for Kokomo's remote kickoff, and the list of his contributions to the FIRST community goes on.

Andy, you deserved it, and DJ Fluck deserves lots of credit for presenting Andy's case well enough to win out over all those other good candidates whose cases were presented in that pile of letters the judges had to go through.

My Friend, My Inspiration!

Andy,

As I said on Saturday, I will say it now: There is no one more deserving of this award than you. You are what this world needs: a hero kids of all ages and backgrounds can look up to.

I am a better person today than before I met you, because of how you touched my life. I thank-you and a great big congratulations.

Your Friend,

Paul

P.S. - Did anyone else notice Andy wearing the Thunderchicken hat as he went up for the award?
