SCHA-MI Award Nominations for 2019
We are accepting for nominations for two awards to recognize contributors to school-based health centers in Michigan.
The Apple Award
The purpose of the award is to recognize our school-based and school-linked health center partners for their dedicated support to health centers in Michigan. These partners are appreciated for their consistent involvement and assistance provided to move the center’s work forward to achieve healthy learners. The “Apple Award” is a great way to recognize a community member, advisory board representative, parent, educational partner, or funder who has expressed enduring support for school-based and school-linked health centers in your community or in Michigan.
The Marilynn Keeslar Award
The Marilynn Keeslar Award, was created to recognize an individual who encompasses the traits of Marilynn Keeslar. This is a great way to recognize a staff person, community member, advisory board member, school person, parent, etc. who has gone above and beyond for the health and well-being of Michigan’s youth.
Marilynn had a strong love for mankind. She was a great role model for those who knew her. Her personality exhibited zest, spirit, perseverance, and compassion. Her tenacity allowed her to get the job done despite any odds. Somehow, she always managed to get to get her point across, even against intense opposition. Marilynn was also a visionary. She was way ahead of her time in identifying the services that kids in need. Despite all these incredible traits, she remained humble and never judged those around her.
