Thank you to Bill Selden, President of C.P. Dean Co., Inc..
C.P. Dean has been the Award Sponsor of the Annual Valor Awards since the very first ceremony in 1989.

We were able to visit C.P. Dean and watch as their specialist, Cathrine, transformed a piece of crystal into a meaningful and inspiring award.

Cathrine has been creating awards like this for the past seven months. Her dedication to her work really shows in the art that she creates.

Here, the crystal piece is set, aligned, and leveled into the laser etching machine.

After eight minutes, the laser completes the process, and the award is ready to be cleaned.
