We are pleased to present a Special Recognition Award to Truman McCullough who is the epitome of a ‘Swing dance enthusiast’. He has been a long time dancer and avid supporter of the early Swing dance convention circuit events. A fixture in the Oklahoma, Missouri and Texas areas, he was one of the first Swing dancers to truly travel on a national level, from his south central region to the western states events (including the U.S. Open), and to many Shag community events. His friendly smile and infectious love of the dance and Rhythm & Blues music are present at many events today. He has also been a long-time ‘quiet benefactor’ of various young dancers. We honor his many years of dedicated support of the national Swing dance community.
