Donald Driver announces new achievement awards

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 23, 2013 – 3:09 pm

Donald DriverFormer Packers WR Donald Driver announced on Tuesday a new annual awards program to be conducted through his foundation. Called “Donald Driver’s Driven to Achieve Awards,” they will be presented each year at a ceremony in Milwaukee in partnership with BMO Harris Bank.

The awards will recognize eight individuals each year, with a minimum of five winners coming from the state of Wisconsin, for significant contributions to their communities. The inaugural awards will be presented in spring 2014.

“Too often, we as a society focus on the bad things that are happening,” Driver said in a press release. “This program is about turning the spotlight around and shining it on the people that work hard every day to make this world a better place.”

As stated in the press release, the “Driven to Achieve Awards” are open to all legal residents of the United States who can demonstrate they delivered a clear benefit to their community through volunteerism, mentoring, fundraising or any other not-for-profit means. Award winners will embody leadership, possess a dedication to excellence and will have displayed persistence and tenacity in reaching their organization’s goals.

Detailed award criteria and nomination forms can be found at the Donald Driver Foundation website, www.donalddriverfoundation.com.
