Crystal Awards Honor East Lansing's Unsung Heroes

Posted:

EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) -- Over 100 people gathered at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center this evening to celebrate the 26th annual Crystal Awards.

The ceremony honored four of East Lansing's unsung heroes, thanking them for their extraordinary achievements.

This year's winners included Jim Cunningham, a local artist, Ody Norkin, president of Michigan Flyer, Tom Petoni, a local musician, and Hometown Housing Partnership.

"The crystal awards are really a great example of how a community is more than a street address or services provided by the government," said East Lansing Mayor Pro Term Nathan Triplett. "It's really this group of individuals who are really dedicated to making the town what it is, that's why we're here tonight, to celebrate."
