- Nike Roach of 6th Sense Health and Wellness has earned the Ambassador
of the Year award from the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce. He was
recognized at a special Ambassador meeting on January 8, as well as at
the 2008 Ambassador Luncheon in December.
"Nike is just
amazing," says Gayle Anderson, Chamber President and CEO. "He truly
went above and beyond the normal call of duty-reaching out to current
and prospective members, recruiting new members, and just spreading the
word about the Chamber's mission throughout the community. His
enthusiasm is inspiring and we are extremely fortunate to have
volunteers like him."
Adds Kathy Judkins, Ambassador
Coordinator for the Chamber: "Nike was an obvious choice for Ambassador
of the Year. Not only did he attend a majority of our events last year,
but he was constantly talking to people about the Chamber, trying to
match members with the Chamber benefits that are the best fit for them.
He's like a walking Chamber encyclopedia-and an extremely hard working
advocate for us."
Roach earned Ambassador of the Month honors
six times in 2008-more than any other Ambassador. He also achieved
Honorable Mention once. Ambassadors serve as a vital communication link
between the Chamber and its members, as well as supporting the Chamber
by attending events and serving on committees. An important part of the
Chamber's growth and member retention efforts, Ambassadors enjoy high
community visibility and the ability to network at a higher level and
hone their leadership skills.
