Dave Thomas Legacy Award
Each year we award a CGTI participant with the Dave Thomas Legacy Award. We would like to continue to not only offer the award, but to offer a scholarship too. This fundraiser has been created to raise funds for the award. Anything raised beyond the scholarship amount, $319, will go to a youth in need of financial assistance in Dave's honor.
The Dave Thomas Legacy Award should go to someone who is a true friend to everyone, truly cares and is concerned about other people, is compassionate, has a lot of energy, is a risk taker, connects with those individuals that are harder to reach or someone who is (or has been) “high risk”, stands up for what they believe in, keeps going until they believe the job is done, puts the needs of other people first, is humble, has come a long way in their own right, and has a great sense of humor (and doesn’t mind good practical jokes, even at his or her own expense). It should not go to someone who is necessarily the loudest and most visible leader or the “shining star”.
