Inspiring words from ‘Chesapeake Champion’ Jim Brighton

After receiving the award as the Horn Point Laboratory 2017 Chesapeake Champion on June 23rd, Jim Brighton's prepared remarks told a remarkable story of family and connection to nature. If you were at the award ceremony, you will want to revisit it. If you were not there, you won't want to miss this chance to hear his voice in a copy of his remarks. Jim's speech: "This is so cool! Thank you Dr. Roman and faculty of Horn Point for honoring me with this award. Liz Freedlander, this is totally amazing! Thank you for all you have done to make this evening such a success! Thanks also to Amy Haines, Richard Marks, and all the sponsors that have made this amazing event possible. There are too many people that I need to thank without whose help, inspiration and friendship I wouldn't be here tonight. But a few people stand out that I would like to honor. First off, if you haven't met my parents and my sister you need to! They are the most kind, smart, and inspiring people that I know. Their love knows no bounds and they have supported me through all of my crazy wanderings and endeavors. My wife Colleen. She is my backbone, my partner in all things. Tommy and Susan Campbell. I have worked for the Campbell's for almost 20 years. Their kindness and support has never waivered especially when I've needed it most. And finally my partner at the Maryland Biodiversity Project, Bill Hubick. You could not ask for a more kind and energetic person to work with. His drive and knowledge is what really makes MBP work. He puts up with my rants, talks me down from the ledges I often find myself standing upon, and is a constant inspiration. Thank you brother! The next five years are going to be so
