The Michael W. Stutelberg Award


Photo of Michael W. StutelbergThe Michael W. Stutelberg Award is given in memory of a remarkable young man whose life impacted individuals with disabilities throughout the Midland community. It recognizes individuals and organizations whose actions have significantly benefited Reece Endeavor and its mission of providing affordable housing for individuals with disabilities.

Basic criteria for the award include:

  • Can be given to an individual or an organization
  • Can recognize personal and/or professional commitments
  • Individual or organization must make a significant, positive impact on individuals served by Reece Endeavor

It probably comes down to two things — perseverance and a great attitude. I believe that those are the primary traits that Reece Endeavor wishes to recognize with this award — not giving up, staying the course and doing it with a smile on your face.
