The National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors named Betty Pearson of Walla Walla as a fellow of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors at a regional meeting of the Pacific Northwest chapters in Spokane.

The award recognizes her services at the national, regional and local levels of the NAWCC, sister Mary Drummond said.

Betty is one of only 400 Fellows in the association, which has an international membership of 20,000.

She has been associated with the NAWCC since 1973, serving on a national committee and researching historical clock makers' records.

She was membership chairwoman for a national convention in Portland, and co-chair for the regional convention in Spokane.

Her dedication and enthusiasm for the collectors' group fits in well with another hobby-travel.

She and her husband returned recentlyfrom the NAWCC national meeting in York, Pennsylvania.
