Craig & Al Receive Award From Sentinel Kiwanis Club – Check Out Their Special K Award Here [Photos]
Craig & Al had some unexpected visitors on the show today (April 25). Members of the Sentinel Kiwanis Club of Missoula stopped by to recognize them as nominees for the 25th Annual Lyle R. Heath Community Service Award, which recognizes those who demonstrate great volunteerism.
The 94.9 KYSS FM's morning duo each received the Special K Award for their contributions to the community. The awards were accompanied by a letter from the Sentinel Kiwanis Club of Missoula, which included the following excerpt:
"Our committee was very enthusiastic about your unwavering optimism, boundless energy and willingness to always say 'yes' to this community. Your tireless efforts to raise funds for KYSSmas for Kids and Special Olympics, among many other organizations, have not gone unnoticed. Volunteers are the backbone of our community, and you gentlemen are definitely making a difference."
As if the honor of being nominated for this award wasn't enough to flatter the always humble Craig & Al, the Special K Award itself was extremely — well, special. The award looks just like a Special K cereal box, but has been customized with information about the two Missoula radio DJs, and also includes pictures of them out and about making an impact in our community.
The Lyle R. Heath Community Service Award is given to one adult and one youth in the community each year. This year's honors went to Alvina Cyr, a 90 year-old Missoula resident known for her "dedication to local area senior citizens," and Sentinel High School's Danielle Gornick, who has been "working with middle school students through NCBI (National Coalition Building Institute) to break down stereotypes and prejudice in an after school club."
