Great Futures Awards Celebrates Youth, Staff & Partnership


the action of marking one’s pleasure at an important event or occasion by engaging in enjoyable, typically social, activity.

The atmosphere at Detroit’s Garden Theater was celebratory from the moment guests hit the door. DJ Todd Everett could be heard spinning all the hits from the lobby. And the registration table informed everyone that the night was sure to reflect the year that Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan has had.

The first indicator: the reception. The inclusion of youth at an event that is usually reserved for adults reflects the organization’s path forward. Youth and adults together at the Great Futures Awards seemed only right.

The main floor of The Garden was packed with people eager to recognize the work of the BGCSM staff and youth. Program partners, board members, supporters and more all gathered for an evening of elegance. But the real party was upstairs.

The mezzanine served as home to the youth reception that rivaled the one below. Was it mentioned that DJ Todd Everett was amazing?

Princess, 16, is this year’s Youth of the Year representing the Romulus Club. She says that she’s witnessed lots of changes within the organization in her 10 years with BGCSM.

“I could say it’s been a roller coaster,” she says. “I was able to find my safe place. Over the years they’ve seen me grow, but I’ve been able to watch them grow too.” The high school junior hopes to major in psychology after high school graduation.

Two things united the adults and youth; the promise of food and a chance to pose for The Top Pic Collective photo booth.

“I love that the kids are a part of this evening,” says board member Jennifer Demello-Johnson. “We’re here for the kids, not for ourselves.”

The BGCSM staff was also found time to create a few surprises throughout the night – to the point of printing dummy copies of the evening’s program so Hiram E. Jackson and Jennifer Wakenell were unaware that they, too, would be award recipients. The two received the Legacy and Ed Rommeck Professional of the Year Awards, respectively. Going forward, the Legacy Award will name renamed the Hiram E. Jackson Legacy Award.

“I don’t normally go out like this, Shawn,” Jackson joked to the crowd, singling out Shawn H. Wilson, president & CEO of BGCSM. Not only was he surprised, the chairman of BGCSM’s board of directors says that he was surprised that he could be surprised.

Jackson began attending the Fauver-Martin Club at six years old when it was known as the Boys’ Club of Highland Park. He recounted experiences there that ultimately molded him into the man he is today. He then announced a $2M matching grant from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation to the audience of more than 200 people.

“That’s matching, folks. I’m not sure if you caught that,” Wilson quipped.

Donations made to BGCSM’s Reimagine campaign will be matched by the Foundation.

As we enter into 2020, the path forward is both clear and promising.

    If you are a blogger looking for traffic, you will not comment. If you are a reader looking for interaction, you will. I can understand your thoughts, though – it’s like walking into a noisy bar wondering how the hell you’ll talk to your buddy. But honestly? If you’ve got something to say, your comments will be read by others and commented on.

  20. 온라인카지노

    Is there a point of too much? Yes. I visit blogs that have over 50 entries of “Great post! Yay!” and by number three, I’m bored and I’m gone.
    I’d like to add that the way you are responding and even opening the ideas up more in the comments section, keeps the thread going and may provide more ideas for a reader. Sometimes a post gets a few responses and just dies, frequently because everybody just wants to get their 2¢ in and they aren’t really taking in the whole conversation.”

After four hours in Emerg at Peace Saucy, he was sent home with a strap and pain killers (revolting narcotics), and a referral in support of an Ortho specialist. The break is altogether poor, although if it had pierced the skin, he would have had surgery right away. It settle upon constraint some nuts and bolts to secure it for healing and to strengthen/protect it in future. Craig is not a complainer ever and has a ear-splitting permissiveness benefit of pain. He can’t even see the doctor til Thursday, then surgery will be booked. The Ortho doc said the bones can wait til then. I mention, the good-natured should not have to wait. Frightful instead of Craig of order but, here is the ample conversion for my sensitive feedback:in place of of crying, I got cracked and took effect! We are flourishing to interview Craig’s family doc in Vancouver today to prove for quicker care.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Thanks a lot!
