That was Herb Holk, new RVP of Region 15, and
"nice gentleman" is an understatement (IMHO).
The year before he hosted a garden tutoring
extravaganza where he, his wife Sara, and a
couple other judges tutored in several iris
categories (ABs and medians for me).
He took being judges' training chairman for the
region very seriously.
