Above and below are two photos Janet sent August 14, 2012 regarding Pat Boileson's Medallion Award for her work on Janet's biography. The presentation, by DJ "Big Al," took place in Burton's Bend, Nebraska.
You can see larger versions by clicking these pictures. The first one includes book author Mary Schutz.
Janet said, of the photo immediately above: the guy with me and Pat is a very popular DJ at KRVN Radio in Lexington, Nebraska. He goes by BIG AL and he has a Sunday morning Gospel Show.
Pat is, of course, Janet's Fan Club President. How nice that she be rewarded after all of her effort on behalf of the Yodeling Queen.

It is with a great deal of pleasure that I inform you that your book, “Still Lovin' the Ride - The Janet McBride Story ”, has been selected as a 2012 Will Rogers Medallion Award Winner. The Will Rogers Medallion Award is presented each year to those books that represent an Outstanding Achievement in the Publishing of Western Literature. Your book exemplifies the combination of excellent content, high production values and honoring of the Cowboy Heritage that the award was created to acknowledge.
As you know, Will Rogers was a respected writer as well as cowboy entertainer. We hope and believe that the Will Rogers Medallion Award will help to expand the heritage of literature which honors the traditions and values of the American Cowboy, which Will did so much to embody and demonstrate. The Medallion Award was created initially to encourage the continued upgrading of the quality of published books of Cowboy Poetry.
Other categories have been added to honor a wide range of Western Literature, including Western Nonfiction. I am exceptionally pleased to let you know of this award, as it is a great book about a great person.
The Medallion Award Plaques will be awarded at the Ft. Worth Stockyards as part of the National Day of the Cowboy Celebrations on July 29th. We will have an award luncheon in Risky's Steak House on Exchange Ave. starting at 12:30.
Congratulations on your selection. We are especially proud to select a repeat winner. It was well deserved, and we hope to see further award-quality publications from you in the future.
