Ish Sodi Award

The Ish Sodi Award is the highest honor that can be given by a Grand Council of Cryptic Masons. In Virginia, where the Cryptic degrees fall under the authority of the Grand Chapter, this award is given to outstanding Companions and is considered the second highest honor (behind the John Dove Award). Only a very limited number are awarded each year by the Grand High Priest.

This award was first presented by the Grand Chapter Royal Arch Masons in Virginia in 2007 by M.E. Charles "Buddy" Wagner.
