Matt Cullen
Helen and William Milliken Distinguished Service Award recipient
For four decades, Matt Cullen has been a driving force in downtown Detroit’s comeback. As an executive with General Motors and Rock Ventures and a leader on the boards of many local nonprofits, he has steered numerous improvement initiatives, such as renovating dozens of buildings, reviving the riverfront, and launching the QLINE streetcar service. In addition to slowing sprawl, Mr. Cullen’s contributions are helping clean polluted sites, promote healthy neighborhoods, and encourage public transit, making the Motor City a better place to live, work and play.

Mark Covington
Petoskey Prize for Environmental Leadership recipient
With the simple act of clearing a garbage-strewn lot and planting a garden, Mark Covington started a grassroots effort to revive his northeast Detroit neighborhood. In the nine years since, he has nurtured the Georgia Street Community Collective, an urban farming and community engagement initiative. In providing a growing menu of resources available to anyone, including vegetable gardens, a fruit orchard, classes on beekeeping and other subjects, and a community center, Mr. Covington’s GSCC is yielding healthy, positive change.

We hope to see you September 27 in Detroit!
