On November 8th, WGVU hosted the WGVU Engage I HAVE Made a Difference Awards to recognize excellence in the local community, bringing accolades to those who share our commitment to offering everyone an opportunity to make a difference and Be More.
The event brought together a host of many non-profit organizations to be recognized for their great accomplishments in our West Michigan Community. WGVU Engage I HAVE Made a Difference Awards were awarded to one individual and one non-profit organization that best exemplifies outcomes in the five WGVU Engage areas of focus (Inclusion, Health, Arts, Veterans, and Education) and overall excellence in support of our community.
This year, the Education Award went to Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth.
“Thanks to WGVU for recognizing Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth as a leader in Education,” said Rick Huisman, BGC-GR Executive Director. “We are so proud to offer opportunities for success through Education in every child’s life who walks through our doors every day.”
