Chapter Honors Volunteers

For more than 25 years, the Alzheimer's Association of Greater Cincinnati has honored the many contributions of its volunteer network with the presentation of three special volunteer awards. These awards have been presented annually to some of the Chapter's most engaged and productive volunteers during the Chapter's Volunteer Appreciation Event or other major events during the year.
In March, the Chapter awarded its highest honor, the President's Award, to Dr. Gregory Jicha, for his work on behalf of the Alzheimer's Association and his work as a researcher. Dr. Jicha, a neurologist and Alzheimer's researcher at the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging at the University of Kentucky, was presented the award at the Chapter's Alzheimer's Research Event at Xavier University.
During the Art of Making Memories spring benefit in May, the Chapter awarded Dr. Derek and Susan van Amerongen the John Horn "Roll Up Your Sleeves" Award for their long-time support of the Chapter and its fundraising efforts. In addition to serving as past honorary chairs for the spring benefit, they have been active ambassadors for the Association. In addition to his long-time service on the Chapter Board of Directors, Dr. van Amerongen currently serves on the Alzheimer's Association National Board of Directors.
In addition to the President's and John Horn awards, the Elizabeth Bolles Outstanding Service Award recognizes the "hands-on" work of a volunteer in support of Chapter activities.
"We simply could not succeed as a chapter without the invaluable work of our volunteers. Their commitment and support is truly inspiring," said Executive Director Paula Kollstedt.
