St. Louis, Mo.—The National Wood Flooring Association’s (NWFA) chief operating officer, Anita Howard, was chosen as the recipient of the Gary Sinise Foundation’s 2017 Above & Beyond award.

“Every year the Gary Sinise Foundation recognizes the individuals who go above and beyond their duty to get the job done,” said Judith Otter, executive director of the Gary Sinise Foundation. “Anita Howard has done just that. We are grateful for Anita’s dedication, passion and belief in our mission. Anita helps to ensure our severely wounded heroes receive the best quality floors in each specially adapted smart home build through our R.I.S.E. program. It is a crucial component in every house. We are appreciative of everyone at NWFA and we couldn’t think of anyone more deserving than Anita to receive our 2017 Above & Beyond award.”
