Donation: The bronze sculpture “Putting Sheep on the Mountain” is Rick Taylor’s personal tribute to his friend, the late Dr. Jerry Waite. It was donated and auctioned for the first time at the 2011 “Sheep Show” and purchased by Bernie and JoAnn Fiedeldey. By purchasing this item you are joining Bernie and JoAnn in truly trying to put more sheep on the mountain. Dr Waite wasn’t just a member and past president of FNAWS--Doc was FNAWS. He epitomized everything FNAWS stood for. He coined the phrase “Putting Sheep on the Mountain” and gave everything of himself to make National and the Iowa Chapter successful, even if it meant doing the work from a wheelchair. Doc was your “down to earth” charter member of the organization who knew that a buck earned here and a buck earned there made dollars for the wild sheep. Dr Waite was the recipient of the “Presidential Award” in 2000. As he wheeled his wheelchair toward the podium, we looked at a man who had given his heart and soul to the organization he loved. The money raised by the auction of the annual sponsorship of this project will be split between a pet project of the “Biologist of the Year” and other “on the ground” projects. The sponsor(s) will be featured on the sculpture which will be on public display at the WSF headquarters in Cody, Wyoming. It will also be on display at the annual convention. Rick Taylor made a second sculpture entitled “Free at Last” depicting the lamb as it is being released and is jumping for joy. Each annual sponsor will take one of these home with a personalized engraved tag.
