As the situation with COVID-19 has spread to pandemic proportions in the U.S., the Roy Chapman Andrews Society Board of Directors has elected to cancel the 18th Annual Distinguished Explorer Award ceremony events and fund-raising dinner scheduled for April 17th on the Beloit College Campus. With local, state and federal regulations regarding large gatherings now in place and the safety of our Distinguished Explorer Sarah Parcak and those in the Greater Beloit Community and beyond, the Board of Directors made the difficult decision to cancel these events. Dr. Parcak will be honored as the 19th Distinguished Explorer in the spring of 2021 when arrangements can be safely executed.
The Society Board apologizes for this unforeseen inconvenience and hope you and yours will remain safe and healthy during this stressful time. Stay tuned for more announcements from Dr. Parcak and the Roy Chapman Andrews Society.
