GFW Fellows program wins international award
Greater Fort Wayne Inc. is only six months into its GFW Fellows program, created to involve college-age interns so effectively in work and the life of the city that they will be eager and willing to return here after graduation. Yet the program has been named 2015 Chamber Innovator of the Year in the ChamberMaster competition. The competition received 80 entries from across the U.S. and Canada, judged on creativity, community impact and value to the Chamber. “We are excited that GFW Fellows is being recognized for its innovation,” said Justin Clupper, program director of Leadership & Community Engagement. Grand prize is $1,500, plus the top five innovators will be featured in the 2015 e-book edition of Chamber of Inspiration.
