NIOSA unveils 2015 medal

SAN ANTONIO – With Fiesta a little more than a month away, A Night in Old San Antonio unveiled its 2015 NIOSA medal Tuesday.

The unveiling ceremony was held at the Steves Homestead on King William Street, with Fiesta royalty in attendance.

This year's medal was designed by NIOSA Chair Barb Machado.

It features an original drawing by longtime conservation society member Adriel "Squeaky" McGill, who volunteered for decades at NIOSA as an artist in the Bolsa booth.

She also designed the 1991 Fiesta poster.

The booth is now chaired by her daughter, Carolyn Hoelscher.
