2011 Amway Hero Award Winners Announced

The presentation of the 2011 Amway Hero Award Winners brought an emotional close to the Achievers Business Meeting. Moving videos shared the incredible stories of the winners for Determination, Generosity, Leadership, and Patriotism. The 2011 winners:

In the Category of Determination, Hero – Stephen Willoby

Stephen survived a tour of duty in Iraq as a bomb-disposal technician with the Air Force, only to nearly die after breaking his neck in a diving accident. The tragedy left the former staff sergeant unable to move his legs and control his hands, and limited use of his arms. Stephen lives by the terms “Adapt and Overcome.”  “That’s  all anyone can do in the face of adversity. How you adapt determines how you’re going to live the rest of your life. Watch Stephen’s Hero video for his complete story of taking advantage of his second chance at life.

In the Category of Generosity, Hero – Tim Foley

Tim earned two Super Bowl rings as a Miami Dolphin in the 1970s, but he’d rather  talk about his work with Habitat for Humanity  in Central America. “I believe if ‘The Guy In Charge’ lets you make some money,  you ought to do something valuable with it.” Watch Tim’s full Hero video for his complete story of how he plans to build more than 40 homes with the help of IBOs in the eFinity group.

In the Category of Leadership, Hero – Ulises Feliz

“Everyone around me was expecting excellence from me and I was ready to affirm those hopes.” Ulises, a Founders Diamond, has made it his mission to help fully develop the leadership qualities inherent in those IBOs who are downline from him. Watch Ulises’ full Hero video to learn where his inspiration to be a great leader has come from.

In the Category of Patriotism, Hero – Michael Schindler

Mike served his country by enlisting in the Navy. Now he’s serving others who serve their country by providing them with guidance to help preserve their families, strengthen their marriages, and curb domestic violence and suicide. Watch Mike’s full Hero video to see how his family is working together to help create a more positive military experience for families.
