Sterling “Stoney” Maystorovich

Title: President
Company: Slovak Educational Club
Location:  Windber, Pennsylvania, United States

Sterling Maystorovich, President at Slovak Educational Club, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in emergency services and bar management.

After completing biology coursework at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Mr. Maystorovich provided superior service as a firefighter, paramedic and emergency medical services commander from 1975 to 2009 with Scalp Level and Paint Volunteer Fire Company in Paint, Pennsylvania. In addition, he has excelled as a paramedic and deputy commander with East Hills Emergency Medical Services from 1988 to 1993 and as a firefighter and paramedic with Richland Township-Shade Township Fire Department, Boswell Township Fire Department and Windber Fire Department from 1988 to the present. In addition, since 1984 he has served as a tunnel guard for the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission Allegheny Mountain Tunnel. Mr. Maystorovich is a two-time recipient of the Green Cross Lifesaving Award and has received several letters of commendation from the Turnpike Commission and from individuals who were saved by his rescue efforts as a first responder.

Since 1986, Mr. Maystorovich has served the Slovak Educational Club, a popular tavern and nightclub in Windber, Pennsylvania, as auditor, vice president and since 2011, president. His responsibilities include ordering and stocking, repair and maintenance, receiving complaints and resolving issues and oversight of the bar and bartenders. The Slovak Educational Club donates and participates in fundraising efforts for various charities including the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.

Mr. Maystorovich’s over four-decade career in the fire service played a role in his decision to establish an EMS (emergency medical services) system in his community. He was inspired by the popular 1970s television program, “Emergency!” which focused on the exploits of two young firefighter-paramedics, Johnny Gage and Roy DeSoto. Before he established the service, Windber and Scalp Level had never had access to paramedic services. To establish the system, he recruited paramedics, himself included, who were required to attend classes to qualify for the job. Mr. Maystorovich was among the first to graduate from the course. In addition to securing one ambulance, he convinced two fire departments to collaborate with each other for the purchase of a heart monitor. They each donated $5,000 for the equipment. 

In the coming years, Mr. Maystorovich will be enjoying his retirement by visiting Myrtle Beach or going to Florida, but he will stay active in the club for as long as he can, though he prefers to be traveling and seeing more of the world that has yet to see. He hopes to spend time with family members that he had not had the opportunity to see because of his work schedule.
