Don Hudson was the first executive director of the Wyoming Water Quality (WWQ) and Pollution Control Association (PCA). Don was a strong proponent of operator education. He obtained his college education by working during the days and going to school at night. It was because of his belief in education and operator training that the WWQ/PCA honored Don by naming this award for him upon his passing.
