WheelPeople Graphic Designer – David Cooper
It takes well over 100 volunteers to run CRW, and the tasks are not evenly divided. Some contribute more than was ever expected, and do so out of a commitment to the club, and in some cases a high sense of professional pride. One such volunteer is David Cooper who recently retired as the WheelPeople graphic designer. David started in the year 2000, and brought a high degree of professional quality to his work. WheelPeople went beyond what you would expect for a bike club newsletter. I speak from direct experience as I had the privilege of working with David where he created visually stunning articles from the text and photos I supplied. I suppose the highest compliment I can make is that David made me look good. He also never shirked from additional work when he was recruited to take on the design of CRW’s custom apparel. He handled the give and take with the Board with grace, and we were all grateful with the process and for the ultimate product. Larry Kernan, President of CRW, commented, “On behalf of myself, the Board and the entire membership of CRW, it is hard to express sufficient gratitude for all of what David has done over the last 20 years.” We wish David well, and you may also extend thanks when you see him on a club ride.
