The awards season has been often in the news, but you may have missed one event. You can hold off on the sparkling formal attire, although celebration is certainly warranted. Two weeks ago, it was announced that FCNL had won 11 DeRose-Hinkhouse Awards for its work in 2020, exceeding the six that it received in 2019.
