ACKNOWLEDGING GROWTH • CELEBRATING DETERMINATION

Join us for an evening of celebration! The Staying Power Awards will honor 8 men & women who have exhibited true staying power throughout various aspects of their lives. Each individual has completed a community based nonprofit program in the St. Louis area and has continued their efforts toward change. In honoring them, we will acknowledge and celebrate the growth and perseverance that we have seen in these individuals. At the same time, we can tell a positive narrative of what's happening in our city as a whole and specifically in our inner city areas. The Staying Power Awards celebrates what we value: determination, resiliency, grind + fortitude. 

STAYING ON  A POSITIVE PATH IN THE FACE OF LIFE'S CHALLENGES IS WORTH CELEBRATING
