Nick and I work with some incredibly talented and gracious people at Eastern Michigan University through a variety of programs including Bright Futures, Art Around Town and some other grant driven projects. This past Friday we were recognized for our collaboration with them. Nick received the Institute for the ISCFC's (Study of Children, Families and Communities) "Best New Partner Award" and I received the Academic Service-Learning's "Engage at EMU Award." 

I know there are a lot of fuzzy, feel-y words out there but we truly mean it when we say that they're some of the best people we know, doing the most worthwhile work. Thank you, Decky, Russ, Lynn, Jack, Darlene and all the students and staff that we've come into contact with because of you. You guys are the best.
