Recognizing Extraordinary Achievements by BRLI Graduates
The Bangor Region Leadership Institute is accepting nominations for its 2017 G. Clifton Eames Leadership Award. The award will be presented on May 10th at the BRLI Class of 2017’s graduation ceremony.
The G. Clifton Eames Leadership Award was established to recognize the contributions of outstanding BRLI alumni. It was inspired by Clif Eames, whose leadership as a local businessman and commitment to the Bangor Region serves as an illustration of what an outstanding leader truly is. Each year, the award is given to a BRLI alumnus who has used their leadership skills, knowledge and resources to benefit the community and the region. Last year’s recipient was Elizabeth Sutherland, of Sutherland Weston. Past recipients include Jane Searles of Women, Work and Community, Dennis Marble, Deb Neuman, Bill Lucy, Dick Cattelle, Carol Colson, Rob Reeves, Merlene Sanborn, Jon Eames, and Karl Ward.
