Dr. Timmy Cooper Receives Prestigious Boys & Girls Club Award

By Portage County Business Council

On Wednesday, January 22nd, the Boys & Girls Club of Portage County awarded board member, Dr. Timmy Cooper with the Anne G. Schierl “Above and Beyond Award”. Created in 2017, this award in memory of Anne G. Schierl, recognizes community members who go above and beyond for Club members and who work relentlessly to ensure the needs of every child in Portage County are being met.

In addition to his service as a Board Member, Dr. Cooper is the most frequent volunteer Dentist for the Delta Dental Smile Club program at the Boys & Girls Club. He provides preventative check-ups, exams, and works with the program’s hygienist to create treatment plans. All of his services are completely volunteer. In 2019, Dr. Cooper generously donated a panoramic x-ray machine and its installation to the Delta Dental Smile Club to ensure our kids continue to receive proper care.

In addition to his contributions to the Delta Dental Smile Club program, Dr. Cooper works with Club staff to ensure children who are in foster care are able to access Boys & Girls Club programming. He is also serving as President of the United Way of Portage County’s Board of Directors. Dr. Cooper has certainly made the Boys & Girls Club a place for bright smiles and bright futures!
