Sandra A. Day, BC-HIS, a licensed hearing aid specialist at Armstrong's Better Hearing Service, Ltd. in St. Johnsbury recently received an all-star award from the International Hearing Society (IHS).
Each year IHS recognizes members celebrating a milestone year of membership in the society through the all-star program. Day, who has been a licensed hearing aid specialist in Vermont for 15 years, received her 10 year all-star award from the Society. Several all-stars were in attendance and recognized during the society's black-tie diamond anniversary gala celebration last month.
"It was an honor to receive the all-star award from the Society," said Day. "I strive to provide the best hearing health care for my patients and being an IHS member helps me do that. I look forward to many more years of membership and to getting more all-star awards."
Said Day, "The satisfaction that comes with helping a grandparent hear their grandchildren laugh or seeing a patient excel in their career because they can hear better is rewarding and I'm thankful to be in this profession."
Armstrong's Better Hearing Service, Ltd. was established in 1991 to serve the hearing impaired community in the St. Johnsbury area and help improve the quality of life for residents. The office is located at 198 Eastern Ave. in St. Johnsbury.
