Control Special Awards  

   Return to the Control Page  


The Control Division had awards in the 1980s and early 1990s including the Control Academy Award and the Control Achievement Award. Academy Awards were composed of two medallions - a solid silver and a gold plated bronze, the latter for display purposes. The first Academy Awards were presented to the recipients at a ceremony on Mackinac Island. Other out-of-state locations followed. The Achievement Awards were all-bronze and smaller in size. The group photo below shows the recipients of the Achievement Award in 1988.







Here is the famous "Gee Boss It Can't Be Done" Award. It was handed out from 1977 to 1988 by Tony Taraszka to members of Control management who told him that something could not be done. It was stated that if a person got the award twice he would be fired. Mike Enzinger came the closest to that but since he wasn't the sole winner in 1988 his firing did not happen.




Here is the Golden Packers Award, presented to Paul R. Allen in 1979 by Ed Hardwidge.



Other Control awards not pictured here included the VP Award (a Crystal Eagle) and the Sysiphaen Labor Award (a Crystal Cland bowl).If you have a special Control award you would like to share, please send it to me.
