2023 ASCA Lifetime Achievement Award

Dear ASCA Members,

We are thrilled to announce that Marie Murphy has been selected as the recipient of the 2023 ASCA Lifetime Achievement Award. During the spring meeting, Liaison McCabe presented the History Committee’s recommendation to the Board, who unanimously approved the motion to award Marie this prestigious honor.

Marie has made remarkable contributions to ASCA, particularly in the ASCA junior program. Her dedication to the organization and the juniors she mentored is truly commendable and deserving of recognition. As a judge, breeder, affiliate founder, and stock provider, Marie’s influence in her area is immeasurable. Marie has been in Aussies since 1974 and her kennel, Diamond Aire, is ASCA Hall of Fame #4 and Hall of Fame Excellent #3.

We would like to extend our gratitude to Heather Oslie, Melissa Borde, and Kathy Sianko for nominating Marie and providing letters of support.

Please join us in congratulating Marie Murphy on this well-deserved achievement.

Kalla Jaco
ASCA Executive Secretary
