Outstanding Achievement Awards 2015
- "And I believe that the freedom of the material which we know and understand is guaranteed only by a lightness of organization, a maximum of people, good training and good, reliable, sound relay of information. And if we can do these things, we will win. But if we can't do these things, sooner or later the information which we hold will become the property of an untrustworthy few. This I am sure, because it has always happened this way. But that's not reason it has to keep on happening this way. I am not of an inevitable frame of mind...."
- "Scientology, well understood, is a very powerful thing. Poorly relayed, poorly communicated, monopolized or used exclusively for gain, it could be a very destructive thing."
- LRH. From the "Anatomy of the Spirit of Man" congress lectures. Tape 6, June 1955.
new this year[edit | edit source]
Our third year of presenting these awards for outstanding achievement toward the purpose of "Disseminating the positive aspects of the Subject of Scientology, its people, history, technologies and the founder" finds us making some changes to the festivities.
SCIOs[edit | edit source]
We're now calling these awards the SCIO Awards or SCIOs for short
Hopefully we'll get some help from a graphic artist to create an appropriate image we can post alongside present and past winners - one they can proudly display wherever on websites and their individual pages.
the envelope please...[edit | edit source]
outstanding achievement - Field Auditor[edit | edit source]
Trey Lotz is our 2015 SCIO awardd winner for the year but one could honestly say the same would likely be true for any of the past thirty years due to Trey's unprecedented continuous awesome production as an auditor for decades.
In 2015 Trey, a Class VIII auditor, delivered 1521 hours on the entire spectrum of grade chart actions including the highest level techniques of the L's and NOTS.
Trey also sets a great example for what LRH expected of Class VIII's with his continuous support of other auditors via forums, Freezone events and lectures, APIS affiliation and support for our dissemination efforts here at Scientolipedia.
Thank You Trey - you're an inspiration to all auditors for generations to come!
outstanding achievement - Field Group[edit | edit source]
Ron's Org Grenchen, headed by Max and Erica Hauri, continue to demonstrate an amazing level of dedication and purpose year after year after year.
Delivering to over 150 public all levels of the grade chart. only tells part of the story of this great group of dedicated Scientologists.
Max and RO Grenchen also oversee over eight hundred public across eighteen groups in Russia - by far the most robust and upstat field activity on the planet at this time.
Congratulations and a great big THANK YOU to the crew at RO Grenchen!
outstanding achievement - dissemination[edit | edit source]
Brian worked through many challenges to learn the programming for both the iOS app software and this site's software so he could pull real-time data into the app. As the site is updated, so too is the app.
This is Brian's second SCIO award (see the 2014 awards page for his work in developing the Scientolipedia torrent downloads)
Thank You Brian - VWD and carry on! (now we just need someone to do the Android app - anybody wanna take a shot at serious consideration for SCIO next year?)

In addition to having already taken a bold stand against the insanity's of the corporate church's excesses with the website Save Scientology Merrell published his book Arrows in the Dark, which not only detailed some of the most poignant events in Scientology history, it single-highhandedly turned the narrative about Scientology in the face of overwhelming media negativity.
Merrrell also launched the Religious Liberty League website, collaborated on filing for a trademark for the newly initiated "First Independent Church of Scientology" (FICS) and is speaheading the establishment of that group.
Jim Jackson, made headlines with his feature in the Tampa Bay Times series about the Church of Scientology wherein he made the case for legal and corporate restructuring in a heretofore unpublished way.
Jim also made the case for NOT seekiing to revoke the Church of Scientology's tax exempt status as this would be a bad outcome for religious liberty and those of us who seek to continue the Scientology religion - within or without the corporate church.
Both Jim and Merrell demonstrated a spectacular level of confront and willingness to do something positive in spite of personal danger and sacrifice. (deep bow and tip of the cap to you both)
honorable mentions[edit | edit source]
As usual, we want to thank every single auditor who applies LRH's tech to better others and the world around them.
As LRH said, "Auditors are the most valuable beings on this planet".
We look forward to expanding the SCIO awards in the years to come - we're confidant the bad old days are behind us and the future for Scientology never looked brighter.
