EDWARDSVILLE – Three honors will be given out as part of the M.I.C. (Model Innovative County) Summit hosted by Madison County Community Development April 6 and 7 at the Lewis and Clark N.O. Nelson Campus in Edwardsville.
The Summit will now close on the 7th at 3:45 p.m. with a ceremony awarding one individual, one service organization and one business with the Model Leadership Through Service Award.
The recipients include:
– Individual: AJ Ciccarelli
– Organization: Riverbend Family Ministries
– Business: First Mid-Illinois Bank & Trust
“A good deal of this summit is to show what Madison County is doing to become a model in the United States of Innovation, Economic Development and Service,” said Clint Jones, chairman of the Grants Committee which oversees Community Development. “While working on the Supportive & Outreach Services panel it was clear that so many individuals and groups in Madison County are showing community leadership through service. The work they do may not be ground-breaking but it’s the power and the outcomes that make their service innovative. It is important they are recognized.”
All friends, supporters and staff are welcome to attend the Model Leadership Through Service Award Ceremony. The M.I.C. Summit is free and open to anyone that RSVPs.
All questions regarding the Model Leadership Through Service Awards can be forwarded to Kristen Poshard, chief deputy administrator, Madison County Community Development, [email protected] or (618) 296-4379.
