2016 GIS Champion
The GIS Champion award is given to the person that has enthusiastic support of spreading the use of GIS throughout the state. 
When evaluating potential candidates for the TNGIC GIS Champion Award, there was a common thread that emerged.  For every event, opportunity or piece of TNGIC news, there was one person who put in countless hours to make sure that all information was shared quickly and in a professional manner.  That person is Bill Avant, who is this year's award recipient.  Bill maintains all social media outlets for TNGIC, manages their online tracking system used for training and lead the development of our digital phone app used at each annual conference.  The choice for this year's GIS Champion Award was clear.
