Lake Oswego resident Beverly Stewart, Regional Director of Health Initiatives at the American Lung Association of the Mountain Pacific, will be honored with the Staff Excellence Award given by the American Lung Association’s national organization on Friday.

This award recognizes extraordinary staff members throughout all nine charters in the American Lung Association umbrella organization, highlighting staff members who exemplify the nationwide commitment to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.

The criteria for this award include having significant, innovative, demonstrable results which clearly make a sustainable impact on the communities the Lung Association serves; exhibiting strong leadership; and cultivating meaningful involvement by volunteers and other staff members. Ms. Stewart is one of only two recipients of this award nationwide in 2014.

“Beverly has been integral in keeping our charter moving forward and managing her staff in multiple states seamlessly to keep our mission work on track,” says Renee Klein, president and CEO of the American Lung Association of the Mountain Pacific.

“She isn’t afraid to take chances or think outside the box to get our resources and services to as many people as possible.”

Stewart will be honored for her outstanding work at a reception in Chicago at the Marriott O’Hare hotel on Friday.

In notifying Stewart of her award, the review committee recognized her as an “exceptionally well-rounded leader, and her value to the region extends far beyond her functional expertise. She combines a real commitment to our mission and thorough understanding of our programs with practicality and creativity. She also stays abreast of best practices while continually evaluating and incorporating course corrections as needed to keep our charter on the cutting edge with all of our health initiative programing.”

Stewart has been with the Lung Association for nine years and is a graduate of Central Washington University.

The American Lung Association in Oregon is a nonprofit, voluntary public health organization, working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease in Oregon. Its programs focus on the areas of air quality, tobacco prevention and cessation and lung health.
