2005 Volunteer Awards
WROK announces Volunteer Awards
On Tuesday, November 1st, WROK Volunteers and staff celebrated our annual
volunteer appreciation dinner. This annual dinner is our Thank you to the many
volunteers that donate hundreds of hours of community service to the City of
Royal Oak. While the WROK staff handles the technical work, our many talented
volunteers fill the other positions that our productions require. The amount and
type of work varies but includes; cameras, audio, replay and on on-air talent.
Often a single volunteer will do many jobs. The average volunteer man-hours per
shoot is 6-hrs per-volunteer. Some put more in, some less. We value them all.
This year we presented awards to the following volunteers; Jim Nelson, Lynne
Ligett, Richard Clarke Ken Bean, Teresa Siavrakas and Jim Nabti were presented
with plaques for their Outstanding service to WROK.
The Rookie of the Year award was given to Steve Marleau.
The Rugged Stump award, named for beloved volunteer Wally Stump, is awarded
to the volunteer that expresses an uncompromising level of spirit. This year
that person is Josh Clark.
The Volunteer of the Year award was given to Jim Evers. Jim’s voice could be
heard on well over 90% of our youth Sports coverage.
Dinner for the evening was donated by BD’s Mongolian barbecue. This is the
third year that Bill Downs has donated dinner for the event. The plaques awarded
to the volunteers were paid for by CAMCO. No City of Royal Oak funds were used
for this event.
