2015 wisconsin physician assistant of the year

In October, Bart was informed that he was one of the five finalists for the 2015 Wisconsin PA of the Year award.  So, we were able to attend an awards banquet where all of the finalists were recognized, and the winner was announced.  Well, it should surprise no one that Bart was named the 2015 Wisconsin Physician Assistant of the Year!
 Before it was announced that he was the winner, he kept saying that he didn't deserve to win.  But he was wrong.  He couldn't be more deserving.  Everyday he works to serve the minority groups in this area, he has mentored and taught several PA students, he serves on more than one committee to help improve the care that his patients receive.  He is well liked by his patients, and staff.  He loves learning more about medicine, and is always striving to improve as a PA.

 He got up after his name was called, and gave the most perfect acceptance speech.  I cannot believe that he didn't have it planned out word for word beforehand, because it was amazing!  He made people laugh, he made them cry, he was inspiring, and humble and confident.  I know I'm biased, but his acceptance speech was the most interesting part of the whole evening.

 I am just so proud of him, I could burst!!

It was a really special night, and I feel lucky to be married to such an awesome man!
