(MINNEAPOLIS - April 20, 2008) – The Brain Injury Association of Minnesota recognized Andy Schoeberl at the 23rd Annual Conference for Professionals in Brain Injury with the Distinguished Volunteer Service Award. This award is bestowed annually to one volunteer whose initiative and dedication has made a significant impact on services for persons with brain injury.

"Andy has been a volunteer with the Brain Injury Association of Minnesota since September 2007.

Whether it is building a new computer from the ground up, installing a printer, or repairing a network error, Andy puts in the work of a paid professional, identifying the problem and doing everything in his training to solve it.. Through Andy’s efforts and hard work, the Association is able to continue it’s tradition of utilizing the latest technology to offer the best services and support possible to all people affected by brain injury.
