"I sat through many, many presentations by loaned executives and speakers through the years while I was in corporate America. I would write a check, but didnít fully understand and appreciate everything good United Way does until I was a loaned executive myself, visiting agencies and seeing how the funding is used. My motto is: get up, dress up, show up... and do good for the community. You canít do any better than that!"
-Barbara Edwards, John A. Puelicher Award for Loaned Executive Excellence winner
"The roster of prior winners of this award is a list of our community all-stars. To be included on that list is such an honor. It is especially meaningful coming from an organization and team that is so important to me. I truly believe there is no more important organization in our community than United Way. I thank you for recognizing me."
-Greg Marcus, Bill & Ethel Heller Award winner
"Being president of the Amani United community group gives me the opportunity to network with individuals in a broad array of fields that can assist in building Amani to the community it once was: neighbors knowing and communicating with one another, establishing home ownership, and investing in our schools to try to assure students have a fair chance at receiving a quality education. I am truly honored to have someone acknowledge my role in the community."
-Barbara Smith, Gwen T. Jackson Community Service Award winner
