Susie Collins of Chattanooga, TN, has been selected to receive the Hamilton Relay 2018 Better Hearing and Speech Month Recognition Award for the state of Tennessee.
In addition to serving as a member of the Chattanooga Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) chapter since 2010, her dedication to increasing awareness of issues related to hearing loss led to her appointment as representative of the local advocacy group at the national level for the last three years. Moreover, she’s championed the chapter’s endeavors to raise funds and assist with follow-up applications for Chattanoogans who are unable to afford hearing aids.
Also working as the Marion County Sertoma club secretary to coordinate children’s activities related to coping with hearing loss, her outreach efforts have also seen her work hand-in-hand with the area’s senior living facilities to inform residents about assistive technology. When not using her voice to empower people with hearing loss, she is best known for showing her friendly face at the region’s annual Cornbread Festival.
We commend Susie for the aforementioned volunteerism and advocacy efforts and are proud to present her with the Hamilton Relay 2018 Better Hearing and Speech Month Recognition Award for the state of Tennessee.
This leadership recognition has been brought to you by Hamilton Relay.
