Oregon Travel & Tourism Industry Achievement Awards

Carolyn Hill, Executive Director of the Crater Lake National Park Trust and CEO of Travel Southern Oregon, and Craig Ackerman, Superintendent of Crater Lake National Park, earned the 2015 Governor's Tourism Award.

The Oregon Travel & Tourism Industry Achievement Awards recognize outstanding accomplishments during the previous calendar year.

The state’s most prized recognition is the Governor’s Tourism Award. This year’s award was given to Carolyn Hill, Executive Director of the Crater Lake National Park Trust and CEO of Travel Southern Oregon, and to Craig Ackerman, Superintendent of Crater Lake National Park, for their efforts in finalizing a sister park agreement between Crater Lake National Park and Wuyishan National Scenic Area (a UNESCO World Heritage Site in China).

Take a look at all of the 2016 award recipients in the official press release.
