Roadtrip Roundup: 2015 PMP Hall of Fame

|  December 7, 2015

The PMP magazine staff celebrated with the friends, families and colleagues of the Class of 2015: John Cook, Noad Corley, Dr. Laurel Hansen and Dr. Phil Koehler. The black-tie event took place at the Gaylord Opryland on Oct. 19.


From left are Nancy Shaw and Debbie Gann, daughters of Noad Corley; Dr. Laurel Hansen; Dr. Phil Koehler; and Brian and Lyn Cook, grandson and daughter-in-law of John Cook Sr.


Dr. Hansen, far left, celebrates with family and friends during the cocktail reception.


Noad Corley’s daughters gave a touching speech about the loving impact he had on their lives.


During his acceptance speech, Dr. Koehler couldn’t resist letting the cat out of the bag — in this case, a “dead” one given to him by some students.


PMP Editor Heather Gooch presents John Cook Sr.’s plaque to his grandson, Brian Cook.


PMP Publisher and Editorial Director Marty Whitford shares a laugh with Control Solution Inc.’s (CSI’s) Marie Knox, a former student of Dr. Koehler’s, and current University of Florida grad student Casey Parker.


Rockwell Labs’ David Murphy and Dr. Cisse Spragins chat with newly installed Pi Chi Omega President Judy Black of Steritech.

Later in the week, Bug Off Pest Control’s Andy Linares, left, was confirmed as the newest member of the United Producers, Formulators & Distributors Association (UPFDA) — but we’re pretty sure he’s talking about Bug Off’s upcoming New York Expo with PMP’s Marty Whitford here.


Dale Baker represented not only J.T. Eaton & Co., but his late grandfather, Hall of Famer Stanley Baker (Class of 1999).


PMP Columnist Mark “Shep” Sheperdigian of Rose Pest Solutions, enjoyed the event with his wife, Nancy.


Hall of Famer Bob Kunst (Class of 2010) of Fischer Environmental Services, chats with PMP Columnist Frank Meek of Orkin Pest Control.
