Andrew Whyte Service Award
This is JCNA’s most prestigious award for an individual club member. It commemorates Andrew Whyte who was for several years in charge of Jaguar worldwide public relations. He left the company to become a free-lance writer and, as the author of many books about Jaguar, was recognized as the company’s unofficial historian. His personal knowledge of the company was vast and he wrote the definitive biography, Jaguar, The History of A Great British Car. During his Jaguar career, Andrew gave unstintingly of his own time and talent to support the Jaguar enthusiast movement around the world on both local and national levels.
Why is this award important? Nominations for the Andrew Whyte Award are usually submitted by JCNA affiliate clubs on behalf of members who volunteer their services well beyond the norm. It is given for local service, national service or contributions in both areas. It is not so much a competitive trophy as it is a reward for hard work and dedication to JCNA.
