The Pest Management Professional (PMP) Hall of Fame Class of 2015 is comprised of Dr. Laurel Hansen, Dr. Phil Koehler, John R. Cook Sr. and Noad Corley. The magazine staff will induct these deserving candidates in an invitation-only black-tie dinner and ceremony in Nashville on Oct. 19, the night before the National Pest Management Association’s PestWorld 2015 event gets underway. Our formal coverage of the inductees will be in our September issue, but between now and then, we’ll provide you with some informal factoids about them so you can get to know them better.
For example, the late Noad Corley, founder of Corley Pest Control in Dallas, was known throughout the industry as a gentleman and a prankster. Fellow Hall of Famer Norm Cooper (Class of 1999) sent us a photo of one of his favorite gag gifts made by and given to him by Corley — the “Aggie Keys.” Take a closer look at where the key ring goes through, and you’ll see it’s a sly dig at Texas A&M.
On a more serious note, each of these candidates was nominated by members of the industry and voted in by the Hall of Fame committee, whose membership rotates each year. If you’d like to be part of the nomination process for the Hall of Fame Class of 2016, click here.
PMP would like to acknowledge the generous support of its Hall of Fame sponsors.
