PROVO — Kye Nordfelt, coalition coordinator of the Utah County Department of Drug Alcohol and Alcohol Treatment and Prevention, has been named the 2013 Advocate of the Year by Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America.
The award recognizes substance abuse prevention leaders who are forging relationships and educating their elected officials throughout the year about key substance abuse-related issues and helping to ensure that members of Congress understand the importance of community coalitions.
Nordfelt became the coalition coordinator for the Substance Misuse and Abuse Reduction Team in 2008.
“When it comes to policy matters, Kye is one of CADCA’s most active and strongest allies and is always willing to go the extra mile to help advocate for the coalition field. He has helped to secure funding for critically important prevention programs, specifically the Drug Free Communities Program, by mobilizing people within his community and communicating with his members of Congress and senators in a timely manner,” said CADCA Chairman Arthur Dean.
