KCCU’S Bekah Fountain receives award for volunteer work on behalf of veterans

Bekah Fountain, news director, for KCCU, has been recognized with the Carolyn Stone Award, presented by the Comanche County Veterans Council (CCVC), for her volunteer work. The award was created to honor those who have given their time to help veterans’ causes. A plaque commemorating Fountain’s selection for the award will be displayed on the “Wall of Honor” at the Fort Sill Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic.

A member of American’s Veteran Supporters, for which she serves as communications coordinator, Fountain volunteers for numerous veteran-related organizations and initiatives, including Quilts of Valor, Wreaths Across America and Fort Sill National Cemetery’s Memorial Day program. In addition to attending funerals of unclaimed veterans, Fountain has given her time to help with the VA Center’s Cooties with Bingo activity as well as at fundraising events organized by the Veterans of Foreign Wars and CCVC’s Veterans Day program.

Fountain’s dedication to veterans’ causes in one of her priorities. Both of her grandfathers were veterans, as was her father. Her mother, Mary Fountain, received the Carolyn Stone Award in 2021, and her grandmother, Tomoko “Nori” Kassik, was the recipient in 2018, making Fountain the third generation of her family to be selected for the honor.

In addition to her service to veterans-related causes, Fountain has donated her time to the Center for Creative Living, assisting with fundraisers and the annual Christmas luncheon, as well as St John’s Missionary Baptist Church, where she has volunteered to serve meals to the needy.
