For as long as we have held our annual meeting, and shared the State of AYC, we have made it a point to honor inspiring leaders who have made an impact in our community. Past winners include AU40 Mentor of the Year Heather McKissick, Councilmember Greg Casar, President and CEO of Austin Community Foundation Mike Nellis, and Founder of GiveRealty Laurie Loew.
These four change-makers have shown us time and again what is possible. Anyone can make a difference and there is no better time than now.
At 4th Annual State of AYC Annual Meeting, we will recognize and pay tribute to two more individuals who are doing extraordinary things in our community. The AYC ChangeMaker Award, presented by UFCU, is granted to someone who desires change in the world and makes that change happen.
Our finalists for the 2017 ChangeMaker Award are (in no particular order):
