The Douglas N. Cook Award
In 2015 STA created the Douglas N. Cook Lifetime Achievement Award to honor members who have made and are still making significant contributions to our field. It is awarded from time to time when the Executive Committee feels it is warranted.
The first Award went to Fred C. Adams of the Utah Shakespeare Festival for his monumental achievements there.
The second award was coincidentally presented to R. Scott Phillips, also of the Utah Shakespeare Festival upon the occasion of his retirement in 2017. R. Scott plans to remain active in the field as a consultant.
