OnStar subscriber Carole Cooper (center) was named a 2013 Wireless Samaritan Monday, July 22, 2013 at the 19th Annual VITA Achievement Awards in Washington, DC. Coopers actions in her Chevrolet Tahoe during violent thunderstorms at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park last year helped campers in distress, and provided a makeshift command center for rescue workers who used her OnStar connection to communicate with other emergency personnel. Here she poses with OnStar COO Terry Inch and General Motors Global Connected Consumer President Mary Chan. (Photo by Mark Finkenstaedt for OnStar)
