Given annually since 2004, the McClaugherty Award honors an EMLF Member who exemplifies a continuing involvement and commitment to the EMLF, the legal profession, and the energy and mineral industry.
The McClaugherty Award is the Foundation’s highest recognition of an EMLF member’s contributions. John McClaugherty was a friend, colleague, philanthropist, and mentor to many young attorneys, fostering their interest in mineral law and encouraging their support for the Foundation’s programs and projects.
The McClaugherty Award is presented each year at the Annual Institute, chosen by a committee of all past recipients of the award. Nominations can be made via email to Sharon Daniels, Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by letter of recommendation to the EMLF at 320 South Broadway, Suite 101, Lexington, KY 40508. Nominations should be made by May 25, 2018.

Ries, Timothy W. Gresham, Maureen D. Carman, C. David Morrison, Sean Cassidy, Robert G. McLusky, Karen J. Greenwell, and Sharon O. Flanery.
