Peru Resident Receives Stratton Foundation Award
Congratulations to Michael Cobb, recipient of the 2014 Emo Henrich Award presented by the Stratton Foundation and Stratton Resort on Saturday, March 22. The Henrich Awards have been held at Stratton since 1988, with the first original award presented to Emo Henrich, Stratton’s longtime ski school director and founder of the Stratton Mountain Boys. It is presented annually by the Stratton Foundation to an individual who has made significant contributions to the quality of life and a lasting impact on Stratton.
More than 100 friends and supporters congratulated Cobb at a celebration and award ceremony held at the Stratton Mountain Club. Cobb has worked in the mountain resort business for over 40 years, guiding Stratton’s steady growth as marketing director since 1996.
Cobb is creator of the ‘Refuse to Use’ program used in regional schools to reduce the use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs through education and the reward and motivation of winter sports. He is also the originator of ‘24 Hours of Stratton,’ raising $475k for the Stratton Foundation and community children in just two years.
Cobb is currently a member of the board at the Manchester and the Mountains Chamber of Commerce, where he was instrumental in creating the Visitor’s Center in Manchester, Vt. He is a founding director and vice president of the Stratton Foundation, and selectman in his town of Peru. To find out more, visit strattonfoundation.org or call 802-297-2096.
