SNA State Awards Kick It Old School With Big Hair, Bell Bottoms and Some Serious Flair

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but this...we just have to share. Every year, SNA state presidents work tirelessly to further the mission of the Association.  In the spirit of Las Vegas, we decided to kick things up a notch and bring in a few fan favorites to help honor these incredible individuals.

Who better to do that than Sonny and Cher circa 1970!  Decked out in sequins and shag, the dynamic duo took the stage with a fantastic rendition of "I've Got You Babe" and presented the Thelma Flanagan Gold Achievement Award, the Louise Sublette Award of Excellence and the Heart of the Program Award to honorees from over 40 states.  Talk about making an entrance! Honorees hit the catwalk in style rubbing elbows with "The King" himself - Mr. Elvis Presley. Where else but Vegas can you share the spotlight with not one, not two, but three pop icons!? 

If you missed the action this morning, don't fret. Rumor has it that Elvis is in the building for the remainder of the day.  Look for a white bejeweled jumpsuit and matching cape/cumberbund combo. Also be sure to congratulate your colleagues and thank them for their hard work and unwavering dedication to the cause.
