SUGAR HILL, GA. – Toastmasters International, a world leader in communication and leadership development, has awarded its highest honor, Distinguished Toastmaster, to Sugar Hill resident Stephen Box.

The award is given only to those who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and communication skills and who have used these skills to help others in their development. Only a small number of the four million past and present Toastmasters members have achieved DTM status.

“Attaining this award is not an easy task,” said Daniel Rex, executive director of Toastmasters International. “Stephen has met all of our rigorous requirements.”

Box, a full-time online fitness and nutrition coach, joined Sugar Hill Toastmasters in August of 2015 to improve his communication and presentation skills. He says the skills he developed since then have helped him in hosting a wellness workshop for the City of Sugar Hill and as an educational presenter at the District 44 Toastmasters Annual Conference.

Box received his DTM recognition medal May 4, 2019, at a special awards ceremony before more than 350 fellow Toastmasters from around the state during the District 44 Annual Conference luncheon at the Hilton Atlanta Marietta Hotel & Conference Center in Marietta, GA

Sugar Hill Toastmasters meets regularly each Wednesday from 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. inside Sugar Hill City Hall. For more information about the event and club, please visit SugarHill.ToastmastersClubs.org
