SCI-Novi secretary and past president, Jon Gray, was recently presented the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) Partners in Conservation Award and the 2018 Michigan United Conservation Clubs Educator of the Year Award.
Since 2010, Gray has raised $90,000 through the SCI-Novi chapter to offer scholarships to educators to attend the DNR’s Academy of Natural Resources where educators learn about Michigan’s natural resources, trends in resource management and experience activities that bring knowledge to the classroom.
The opening night banquet and awards was a night of triumph and happy tears. SCI President Larry Higgins welcomed the attendees and reminded them of the importance of the SCI mission. Sue Hankner was recognized for a lifetime of tireless service to SCI Foundation/Sables Education programs and Membership & Chapter Development Committee Co-Chairs Sherry Maddox and Don Detwiler presented the Chapter Publications awards.
