Governor Milliken joins honorees at MEC's 15th annual awards event

Former Michigan Governor William Milliken headlined a roster of more than 175 friends and supporters who packed the City Club in Ann Arbor this summer for the Michigan Environmental Council’s 15th Annual Environmental Awards Celebration.

Author, activist, historian and policy expert Dave Dempsey received MEC’s Helen & William Milliken Distinguished Service Award during the ceremony. Bob Andrus—a tireless volunteer who coordinates river restoration and protection in the Au Sable River watershed—received MEC’s Petoskey Prize for Environmental Leadership.

Gov. Milliken—whose career was profiled by Dempsey in the biography William G. Milliken: Michigan’s Passionate Moderate, flew in from Traverse City to honor his biographer and friend. Attendees included a number of elected officials and members of Gov. Rick Snyder’s administration; friends, allies and member group representatives from across the state; and donors, supporters and sponsors of MEC’s policy work.
