Silver Kite CEO awarded $30,000 to partner with local senior living organization to develop intergen
Silver Kite CEO Jen Kulik received a 2018 Wall Service Award from her alma mater, Grinnell College, to develop and facilitate intergenerational programs in partnership with the SHAG (Sustainable Housing for the Ageless Generation) Foundation.
The award was named in honor of Joseph Wall ’41, professor of history and longtime dean of Grinnell College, who inspired an ideal of social responsibility in his students.
Each year, a committee composed of alumni, faculty, and a student choose up to two alumni award recipients and award the $30,000 prizes to either jump-start or complete a project that shows creativity and commitment to effecting positive social change.
Since 1996, the Wall Award has been presented to 50 individuals who have contributed over $1 million and their time and talents to 44 diverse projects throughout the United States and in five other countries.
