Schultz Leadership Award, Quality of Life Award, and the 4 Under 40 Awards. We have some outstanding nominees this year. The Defiance Area Foundation will be honoring their nominee for the Good Citizenship Award. This prestigious award, endowed by the Laurie and Mike McCann Family began in 2015 and is presented annually to one of Defiance area’s outstanding citizens. Many of you will have your businesses honored at this banquet. If you received a letter that your business is being honored this year please respond quickly so we can properly showcase your business.
