This year's Michigan State USBC WBA Manager of the Year award is being presented to Joyce Allen of the Ogemaw County USBC.

Joyce has been the Women's Association Manager (Secretary) for 15 years and the Secretary for the Men's Association for 14 years. Now she is the Manager of the Ogemaw County USBC, which is two associations that merged into one association. Joyce is also a Michigan State USBC WBA Board member.

Joyce has been an avid bowler for over 30 years, she bowls in 4 leagues. Joyce works very hard to get people involved in bowling. She organizes groups to participate in tournaments for regional, state and national tournaments. She also works very hard to keep up on all rule changes. She always jumps to the front when a problem arises and is relentless in a search for a solution. Joyce is a great ambassador for the game of bowling with a smile and a friendly word for all.

Joyce volunteers at the local hospital; she is a loving wife, giving parent, and a doting grandparent. Ogemaw County bowlers are very lucky to have such a person running their association.

Congratulations Joyce, the Michigan State USBC WBA is proud to present you the Manager of the Year Award for 2008.
