American Heart Association honors local volunteer Dave Stroh with its Communications Award
ANCHORAGE, ALASKA—Communications volunteer Dave Stroh is the 2016 recipient of the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Communications Award, one of the top honors given to volunteers in the Western States Affiliate, which covers Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington. Stroh’s award was presented during the AHA’s volunteer awards dinner in Los Angeles on June 6.
The Communications Award recognizes outstanding communications efforts by an individual volunteer working to promote the positioning of the American Heart Association and its efforts to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
Stroh was recognized for outstanding communications achievements to promote the messages of the American Heart Association, increasing public awareness and influencing lifestyle choices. Stroh has been the voice of the AHA in the state for more than 28 years. He promotes AHA events on-air, emcees the Anchorage Heart Run and Heart Walk events, develops public service announcements and serves as an AHA ambassador to all seven of Alpha Media’s Alaska radio stations.
“I need to thank and recognize my radio listeners for helping me earn this recognition. It’s their response to our promotions, and their support of the American Heart Association that deserve recognition. When KOOL listeners step up…they do so in a BIG WAY!” said Stroh. “I am humbled by this award and value the opportunity to stand with the American Heart Association on the front lines of the battle against heart disease and stroke here in Alaska.”
