Louise Stoneberger of Stafford, Virginia is always eager to share her experience and talents whenever needed. She is dedicated to improving the lives of seniors and individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Louise volunteers for the disAbility Resource Center (dRC) where she stays busy by following up with individuals who have received equipment from dRC and assisting with the installation of assistive listening devices when needed. She also provides information on the variety of apps available for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing for use on their smartphones. Additionally, as a cochlear implant user herself, she enjoys mentoring and offering her knowledge to individuals considering cochlear implants.
Louise is also a member of the Rappahannock Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association (HLA-Ra) and is instrumental in helping the chapter grow in membership. She spreads awareness by distributing pamphlets and flyers to local businesses, agencies and communities. She also assisted a fellow HLA-Ra member in obtaining a service dog and provided transportation for the dog’s training and re-certification requirements.
Louise also extended her volunteer efforts in the planning of the Cochlear Implant Conference Workshop and the Military Cochlear Implant Workshop in Fredericksburg, Virginia. She helped set up conference rooms and served as photographer for both workshops.
We commend Louise Stoneberger for her generosity and dedication to improving the lives of individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing and are pleased to present her with the Hamilton Relay 2014 Better Hearing and Speech Month Recognition Award for the Commonwealth of Virginia.
This leadership recognition has been brought to you by Hamilton Relay.
