Charlie Malone
The 2002 Barton A. Cummings Gold Medal Award was presented to Charlie Malone. For over 40 years, Charlie Malone has unreservedly volunteered his service to the AAF. He has touched many lives and has had an impact in a variety of AAF-related activities. However, his special focus from the beginning has been on students and advertising education.

Serving as student competition coordinator for District 7 in 1983, he accompanied a student team from the University of Georgia to the AAF National Conference where they won first place. In 1998, as college chapter coordinator, Malone took on a personal mission of reviving District 7 college chapters and initiating new ones. In September 1998, the district had less than 17 college chapters, but through Malone's diligence and dedication, by April 2000, the district's college chapters had grown to 24.
