and finally, occasionally the governors board comes together to recognize an individual who has given extraordinary service to the site and the community. The Order of Merlin to Hogwarts Online is a special distinction and this honor has only been bestowed a handful of times since then in the First, Second, and Third Degrees. Although it feels this recipient has been a member of the governor's board for much longer, Prof. Caleb Rothwell has contributed so much to the site in his time on our team. When the site was in dire need of help and leadership, Caleb was quick to accept that responsibility and reliable in his response to the various needs of our site as we fought to maintain stability in the change of site ownership and governor leadership. Since that day, Caleb has contributed to the site across multiple commissions, most recently of which was in the reformation and revitalization of our towns and public works.
The owner of the site, Giselle D'lisle, and I discussed this award in private and came to the conclusion that Prof. Caleb Rothwell has earned the honor of receiving The Order of Merlin, Third Class, for his dedication and leadership on Hogwarts Online.
Congratulations to everyone!
