During the award ceremony, Dr. Sawyer was honored for his support of the chiropractic profession throughout his career as well as his ongoing support of Northwestern. Many of Dr. Sawyer’s family members and friends accompanied him and his wife Jane to the event. A number of  former ACA colleagues offered congratulatory messages to Dr. Sawyer via a video presentation; and several previous Brilliant Star award winners attended the event, offering their congratulations to Dr. Sawyer. The evening concluded with dancing and live music by the Wolverines Big Band.
