Every four years, The Salvation Army honors “exceptional Advisory Board members” at their National Advisory Organization Conference. The award is presented to an honoree in each of The Salvation Army’s four territories. This year, Bruce Akers (LC 1978) received the award from the Eastern Territory Commission.
In a release by The Salvation Army of Greater Cleveland, Major Thomas Applin shared, “Bruce Akers is amongst the finest of Salvation Army advisory board members throughout the United States. He is a model advisory board member, who embodies the essence of commitment and consistency. We in the Greater Cleveland community are deeply grateful for his continued service and sense of compassion for more than 50 years!”
