Governor's Service Awards Winners
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Community Service Commission are pleased to honor 10 winners of the 2020/2021 Governor's Service Awards who supported significant needs and made a difference in food distribution, health or supporting other community issues during the pandemic.
“Through the historic challenges of the last couple of years, countless Michiganders stepped up to support their loved ones. On National Volunteer Recognition Day, we acknowledge those individuals, businesses, and organizations that went above and beyond, selflessly devoting their time and resources to make a difference for their fellow Michiganders,” said Gov. Whitmer. “The 10 individuals receiving the Governor’s Service Awards this year helped strengthen our communities by feeding families, administering vaccines, supporting local businesses, mentoring young people, and so much more. We should strive to live up to the example they have set and continue helping one another because tough times don’t last, but tough people do.”
To recognize those who go above and beyond, the Governor's Service Awards have been presented since 1994. For nearly 30 years, the Michigan Community Service Commission has supported Michigan volunteers, organizations and businesses that are committed to service and play a critical role in improving the lives of people and our communities.
