United Way Award

Nancy& I got up early,bathed,dressed,and to the convention center by 8am. it was the campaign United Way campaign"victory program. they also announced the student winners of the essay contest and a new volunteer award named after me. i felt humbled and honored. it is specifically for excellence in volunteer leadership for my wide volunteering involvement over the last 20+ years.

Just to clarify; my out patient therapy is not at the hospital, but at a new facility on Bethel. parking &long walks shouldn't be a problem. we have our initial meeting/evaluation on Monday morning.

Note from Nancy: If Susan or Kimberlee would like to meet us there that would be fine :) Thanks for the offer!


  1. Congratulations on a very well-deserved award Mike! The United Way has been fortunate to have you so involved for such a long time!


  2. Congratulations Mike and Nancy. Any award of this type required two people. "For they also serve who only stand and wait." What a great honor and fitting recognition of two giving hearts always in search of a better community.

  3. Congratulations on a well deserved honor!
    Tim and MKL

  4. Ditto!!! You are sooooo deserving!!! Congrats Michael C!

  5. Mike, there is not another who is as deserving as you!! Heartfelt congratulations on such a wonderful award from United Way. We are so proud of you.

    Have a wonderful day.


  6. I was hoping to see Mike's pic & new plaque accompany the United Way article in the Muncie Star today! What a nice honor for 20+ years of service to the community. I loved the quote by Mike and have no doubt the community loves him in return. You're a good man and have much more to contribute.

    Your family is so proud of you, Michael Wayne!
