Stewart Couch Memorial Award
Presented At The 2012 National Conference in Las Vegas
VRHP lost a dear friend and colleague in the spring of 2012.
After learning of the loss of this admired and respected person, the Outer Banks Association of Realtors established the Stewart Couch Memorial Scholarship fund for Hatteras Island seniors seeking higher education.
In recognition of Stewart’s standards, commitment, and contribution to the professionalism of vacation rental housekeeping the VRHP board of directors voted to create the Stewart Couch Memorial Award.
This award will donate $1,000 to the Outer Banks Association of Realtors Stewart Couch scholarship fund every three years in the name of a member company who holds the professionalism of housekeeping in the highest regard, supports continuing education, and fosters innovation to “raise the bar” for professional housekeeping in the vacation rental industry.
The first annual award was proudly presented, posthumously, to Stewart Couch himself and to Hatteras Realty at our national conference in October, 2012.
Amy Helle, president of Hatteras Realty, accepted the award on behalf of Stewart Couch and Hatteras Realty.
