During the nineties, the club and the world lost one of its most endearing members when Barbara Strebeigh passed away on September 14, 1994, at the age of 92. Barbara was well known and respected in the dog world as a breeder and as the importer of Jokyl Bengal Sabu. Beyond this Barbara was an athlete and an accomplished artist, but above all, a very very warm human being who truly saw the best in everyone and everything.
In her honor and memory, the ATCA established the Barbara Strebeigh Fellowship Award to be presented, when deemed appropriate to ATCA members who exemplify the spirit and attributes that made Barbara an inspiration to us all. Specifically, those attributes are enduring dedication and extraordinary contributions to the ATCA and the breed while exhibiting sportsmanship, consideration of others, and goodwill.
The award is not a trophy for competition, shall never be retired and shall be on display only. The award is presented to recipients during the annual dinner at MCKC.
Recipients of this award are:
