Dave Nelson awarded Volunteer of the Year
Jeanne Lord awarded Rookie of the Year
Elizabeth Grant, Program Director, awarded Dave Nelson the coveted
Volunteer of the Year award at the Tillicum Foundation's Annual
Membership Meeting, on Saturday, November 18, 2008.
Dave began volunteering at the station in 2001. Since then he has
dedicated his every Saturday morning, from 9:00-11:30am, to be the
morning host of Weekend Edition and Car Talk. The last Saturday of each
month Dave is the in-studio engineer of the live family broadcast of Troll
Radio Review from the Performing Arts Center in Astoria.
Dave may be the Portland Trail Blazers' biggest fan, and with that spirit
has brought sports to Coast Community Radio. He produces Sports
Ticket, a five-minutes roundup broadcast at 9:34 each Saturday morning,
during Weekend Edition. For more about Dave, visit his page.
Last year Jeanne Lord volunteered to "man" the front desk one
afternoon a week. She not only answered phones and greeted
visitors, but also pitched in to help mail the Current, write public
service announcements and many other office duties.
Jeanne is moving to Washington to be closer to her family. We
will miss her! Thank you, Jeanne!
