Nominate a Michiganian of the Year

The Detroit News
Dr. Eva Feldman, who teaches at the University of Michigan, was named a Michiganian of the Year in 2011.

We’re looking for local heroes — the movers and shakers, often completely unsung, who help patch up life’s rough spots by reaching out and making this a better state.

In short, we’re looking for the 2016 Michiganians of the Year. People like 2011 honoree, Dr. Eva Feldman, recognized for her work to research aimed at therapies for ALS patients.

We’re also seeking nominations for the Angelo B. Henderson Community Commitment Award. The honor is named after Henderson, a former Detroit News reporter, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and talk show host who died in 2014. He was co-founder of the Detroit 300, a citizens patrol group that is credited with providing information to Detroit police that led to criminal arrests. Through his weekday WCHB-AM talk show, Henderson urged Detroit residents to become involved and take back their neighborhoods. The annual award will honor someone who is willing to confront community challenges and stand up for what’s right.
