The James P. Lovell Advocacy Award is given annually by the International Hearing Society to the member or organization that has accomplished extraordinary achievements in advocating for the deaf and hard of hearing. This year, Beltone Tristate’s Amanda Bonner BC-HIS has been honored with the award. 

As a National Board Certified Hearing Care Practitioner, Amanda has been serving the hearing impaired for over a decade with half of that time at Beltone Tristate. While she is largely seeing patients in Huntington, WV and Hamlin, WV, her contributions to the deaf and hearing-impaired community don’t end there. 

“Amanda is deeply committed to the hearing care industry and to improving the lives of the hearing impaired,” said Beltone Tristate’s President and Owner, Marsha Mattingly. “She sets a great example within our profession for what the future of hearing care can and should be.”

Amanda is a third-generation Hearing Care Practitioner, and she has learned to always follow the Golden Rule when treating and caring for her patients. Her passion for helping others is apparent as she guides her patients through their journey to better hearing and maintaining an active and enjoyable life. 

Please join us in congratulating Amanda on this amazing achievement! She will also be honored at the IHS Annual Convention & Expo later this month.
