Cheryl Zuckerman, of Chattanooga, Tennessee, has been selected to as the recipient of the Hamilton Relay 2019 Deaf Community Leader Award for the state of Tennessee.
A celebrated advocate, Cheryl has been acclaimed for her consistent and proactive efforts for the Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf-Blind communities across the Volunteer State. Her activity in the Deaf community includes decades of service that is highlighted by her role as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor for the Tennessee Department of Health and Human Services. She has also served on Chattanooga’s Mayor’s Council on Disabilities and acted as an advisor for the Chattanooga Emergency Preparedness project – an initiative designed to provide support for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Her community outreach is not simply limited to those roles. Cheryl’s efforts on behalf of individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing include but are not solely comprised of the following: serving on Chattanooga’s Area Employment Consortium, the Digital Equity Committee and being an active member of the Chattanooga chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America.
Cheryl will be presented the Hamilton Relay Deaf Community Leader award on October 24, 2019 in Nashville, Tennessee.
We commend Cheryl for her leadership and are proud to present her with the Deaf Community Leader Award for the state of Tennessee.
