Service Award 2006: Kevin Kell

Photo Kevin Kell has been a member of the Kingston Centre since 1990, serving in many capacities -- as KC librarian (1994-96), KC Webmaster (1996-03), Regulus editor (1996-03), and the main force behind all other publications created by the Centre, he participated in the assembly of more than thirty barn-door trackers, a telescope-grinding machine, and several large mirrors.

Kevin is an avid promoter of responsible lighting, and an indefatigable member of planning committees for public events and star parties. One of his key projects has been the introduction of the Observational Astronomy for the Novice program to Kingston, with help from the Prince George Centre.

Members of other Centres have also benefited from Kevin's enthusiasm and energy. He is a member of RASC's Information Technology Committee and the National Webmaster since 2000. He has opened the history of the RASC to all members by working with others to archive past RASC reports and minutes electronically. This richly deserved Service Award is in recognition of Kevin's dedication over the past 15 years and a vote of thanks from the members of the Kingston Centre.
