According to Matt Commers (bottom picture) ‘Many staff members within the FHML deserve this award. I am nonetheless humbly honored to receive it this year. The presentational speech by Valeria Lima Passos was a delight and inspiration to me. I will enjoy thinking about whom to pass on this rotating prize (wisseltroffee) in 2020.’
