JOHN BROWN UNIVERSITY Christian AC KLRC/SILOAM SPRINGS, AR has been selected as one of 50 finalists for the NAB's CRYSTAL AWARD FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE.
"Our listeners are the best anywhere. They always respond with enthusiastic support when presented with an opportunity to impact the community," said KLRC GM SEAN SAWATZKY. "I'm so grateful for a staff that loves to serve and for the ownership of JOHN BROWN UNIVERSITY that encourages us to make a difference."
Last NOVEMBER KLRC listeners stepped up to perform random acts of kindness in response to KLRC's "PAY IT FORWARD" campaign. In DECEMBER KLRC listeners granted more than 50 wishes of NORTHWEST ARKANSAS residents through the "CHRISTMAS WISH" project. In FEBRUARY "WITH LOVE FROM NWA" encouraged listeners to make VALENTINE'S DAY cards for nursing home patients and home-bound seniors in the NORTHWEST ARKANSAS area.
"This nomination is a reflection of the heart of our listeners and the soul of this radio station. Pouring ourselves into loving our neighbors is what we do! And while it's really encouraging to be recognized at this level, the greatest reward comes in knowing we have done what we were created to do. If one person realizes that God loves them through our efforts, it's all worth it!" said PD MARK MICHAELS.
