The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) Inc. has presented the Joseph J. Smrekar Memorial Award to Russ Delozier.

The institute’s annual award was established by Milliken & Co. in 1998 to honor the late Dr. Joe Smrekar who volunteered on many CRI committees. CRI staff chose Delozier as this year’s winner for his volunteer efforts in support of the institute’s initiatives.

“From everyone at CRI, we are grateful for Russ’s dedication and the expertise he brings as a volunteer,” said Joe Yarbrough, CRI president. “His participation is vital to many key committees and has been invaluable to CRI in support of the carpet industry.”

Delozier received the award at CRI’s annual membership meeting, which took place earlier this week in Dalton, Georgia.
