The Denise Potuznik Meier Award Time-Talent-Treasure Established in 2015
The Arc Muskegon Board of Directors has fittingly named a new award after Denise. In 2015 the board spoke at length about acknowledging a long-time supporter who has made significant contributions to The Arc Muskegon and then to honor somoene each year thereafter. It was important that the recipients 'contribution' be not just financial in nature. The criteria was established based on a person's time (volunteerism), talent (unique gifts & education) and treasure (donations/gifts in kind). At the November 2016 board meeting, the suggestion of naming it after Denise was easily decided. She truly was the embodiment of our criteria. The 2 recipients were Mr. Don Martines and Dr. Patricia Townsend. Read more by visiting www.arcmuskegon.org
