The History of the Evy

The late Dr. Jeffrey Golub-Evans was the creative force behind the coveted AACD Celebration of Excellence statuette. The award was recently christened “The Evy,” in honor of him.

The statuette is presented to award winners each year at the Celebration of Excellence Gala during the Annual AACD Scientific Session.

Since his passing, Dr. Golub-Evans has generated many thoughtful comments and remembrances from AACD members and others who were a part of his life.
