Teleproductions honored with the President’s Award from the Margaret Clark Morgan foundation
The Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation honored TeleProductions and producer Shane Roach with the President’s Award during its annual Impact Awards ceremony in November 2016. At the event, the foundation debuted new videos, created by TeleProductions, highlighting the impact of the organization's work on those it serves.
Annually, the Morgan Foundation — an organization dedicated to mental wellness, the arts and education in Northeast Ohio — recognizes institutions and individuals making a difference in each of the foundation’s focus areas. Honorees in 2016 were the Akron Civic Theatre (Excellence in Arts), Child Guidance and Family Solutions (Excellence in Mental Health), Kent State University School of Fashion (Excellence in Education) and Alison Malmon of Active Minds, Inc. (Compass Award).
Roach has worked closely with the foundation staff over the years to tell each of the Impact Award winners' stories.
“It’s such a wonderful project to work on; the recipients are so inspiring and telling those stories is what inspires me in my profession,” Roach said.
The Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation was founded in 2001 in Hudson, Ohio, as a private grantmaking foundation. Margaret Clark Morgan’s husband, Burton D. Morgan, provided the initial donation that established the foundation. Supports the nourishment of the human mind through the promotion of mental wellness, the arts and education. It envisions a world where:
- All regard mental wellness as an integral part of a healthy life.
- Recovery from mental illness is the expectation.
- The arts and education are cornerstones of a vibrant society.
To this end, the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation utilizes best practices in its governance, management and grantmaking; earning a reputation as an exemplary foundation and being a source of pride to the community and Morgan family.
