Col. Craig R Dickson
The highest honor awarded by the Commonwealth of Kentucky is that of Kentucky Colonel.
Commissions for Kentucky Colonels are given by the Governor and the Secretary of State to individuals in recognition of noteworthy accomplishments and outstanding service to a community, state or the nation.
A list of Kentucky Colonels is a Who's Who of outstanding men and women around the world. The certificate, signed by the Governor and the Secretary of State and bearing the Great Seal of Kentucky, has hung on the walls of such distinguished leaders as Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson and Ronald Reagan, and English Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Certificates are also proudly displayed by great second grade teachers and brave volunteer firemen who have performed in an extraordinary manner.
Craig was commissioned a Kentucky Colonel by the Governor of the State of Kentucky in 2006
Craig and the Internet - there from the beginning...............................
1991 SpiderNet was a free service to magicians by Richard Robinson. It contained a SAM On Line section for current SAM and SYM members and was moderated by Craig Dickson. The SAM National Council held the first online conference, and then became the first National Organization to have a website. Look where it has all led to now. Not many had the vision 20 years ago to where this was going, Richard Robinson was at the forefront. Some of us also realized the potential and went along, sharing that vision.
