President’s Awards

The purpose of the award is to “celebrate people who have done something of such merit and impact that it creates transformative change in some way,” Rev. Daniel said.

Sue, a longtime volunteer and philanthropist for United Church Homes, was inspired in November to extend a matching gift challenge to the board, which gives through the annual Board of Directors volunteer leadership appeal. The challenge led to unprecedented annual giving of over $70,000 for the volunteer board.

Cheryl and Scott were recognized for their collaborative efforts to create the first internal leadership program for United Church Homes staff. The LEADS program — Leadership, Education, Achievement, Development, Success — is the first program of its kind for the organization and builds on a robust professional development program that already includes state and national leadership development programs, tuition reimbursement, and educational loan assistance.
