3 Oct 2022 3:36 PM | Anonymous

Every year, the George Hoy Excellence in Tourism Award is presented to a deserving individual or entity that exemplifies tourism in Northeast Ohio. George Hoy was an Adventures member for over 30 years, he was the proprietor of the Inn at Brandywine Falls, and he was a strong advocate for NE Ohio tourism. George joined the tourism industry when he retired from his “real job” and was devoted until his death

in 2018. George was also a significant financial supporter of Adventures in Northeast Ohio, especially when he and Katie would shop the holiday auction! George was a tourism champion & friend to all of us, and it is in his honor we present this award.

Two incredible nominations were made this year and the committee had an incredibly difficult task of selecting one winner. This is a true testament to the commitment and involvement of ordinary people going above and beyond to elevate the tourism industry in Northeast Ohio.

This year’s George Hoy Excellence in Tourism Award consisted of Laura Felberg, along with four previous George Hoy Excellence Award Winners: Dan Hostetler, Lisa Kusner-Hovanec, Marty Starkey, and Colleen Grey.

With that, it is time to announce the 2022 George Hoy Excellence in Tourism Award! This year’s winner began their career with a Fortune 500 company out of state, but soon returned home to be involved with the family business. As the Marketing Director of the company, they also became very involved in the tourism industry, including Adventures in Northeast Ohio and the Wayne County CVB Board of Directors. They enthusiastically attended nearly every Adventures meeting, while often bringing along guests and supporting the fundraisers. This person is always friendly and willing to lend their knowledge and expertise with others and participates in tourism activities throughout northeast Ohio and beyond.

It is our honor to announce Glenda Lehman Ervin as the 2022 George Hoy Excellence in Tourism Award!

Adventures in Northeast Ohio is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization.
