Newest fellow of the ACA

Post by Greg Steeves » Sun Jul 20, 2008 9:38 pm

I wanted to congratulate our own Juan Miguel honored this weekend in Atlanta at the annual American Cichlid Association convention, on being named "Fellow of the ACA". The great honor could not have been bestowed on a better recipient.
Congratulations Juan!

Thanks! It was great to see you guys there I just regret I had no more time to talk to you as I waned to. I am still trying to gasp why is that I deserve it? But I feel very honored indeed. However as far as I know is not an ACA fellow what I was appointed to, but Guy Jordan fellow. I was trying to find in the ACA homepage what exactly are these recognitions but could not find it. Perhaps is ACA fellow after all? I am not sure.

I shiver just to think of the stature of the rest of the Guy Jordan Fellow Award recipients, and that I got the seventh award! I certainly feel very honored. I am speachless.

You sir are much to modest. Any one who partakes in this forum, has had the luck of catching your presentations or is aware of your own body of work with regards to cichlids knows that you are equally deserving of such recognition. Thank you for not only educating me but also taking the time for an introduction. The opportunity to shake your hand was honestly one of the highlights of the convention for me.

I just want to say that it was an honor to be on the Board of Trustees when this was propped and voted on. You are a consummate gentleman and a blessing to those in the cichlid hobby.

Congratulations on your well deserved recognition, Juan.
