Meritorious Service

Roger Tessman
City: Plymouth
State: WI
Inducted: 1994

As Federation Internationale des Quilleurs President from 1984 to 1995, Tessman worked tirelessly to gain bowling Olympic recognition for the sport. He led the movement to have bowling gain membership in the United States Olympic Committee in 1984 and two years later he was instrumental in gaining recognition for the sport in the Pan American Games. But his original legacy began with ABC from association official all the way to the post of Executive Secretary-Treasurer for seven years.
