The 2011 NSCA Lifetime Achievement Award recipient was presented posthumously to Randy Vaughan of AE Systems. His son, Tyler, accepted the award on behalf of Randy’s family. Vaughan was a charter member of NSCA, and served on the NSCA Board of Directors from 1997-2008, including a two-year term as president beginning in 2005. Additionally, he served as an instructor for NSCA University for more than 12 years, and was named its Educator of the Year in 2007. He also served as chairman of the NSCA Education Committee for a number of years. His greatest accomplishments for NSCA include the creation of NSCA University and the Business & Leadership Conference, and his role as a subject matter expert and content developer for the industry. In addition to the Lifetime Achievement Award, the NSCA Education Foundation has also named a scholarship in his memory for first-time attendees of the NSCA Business & Leadership Conference.

“The association is thrilled to honor these individuals who are leading the way as our industry continues to expand into new markets and technologies,” said Chuck Wilson, NSCA executive director.
