THE APEX AWARD
The APEX Award will be given to two individuals each year. The Volunteer of the Year APEX Award will be given to an individual who has dedicated his or her time and talents to human service nonprofit organizations to make a difference in the lives of others. The Champion of the Year APEX Award will be given to a Director or staff member of one or more human service nonprofit agencies who has dedicated their life’s work to helping others and creating needed change in our community. The term APEX was chosen because it symbolizes the meaning behind the award – the highest point or level of service to others that one can give.

The UW has always been there for Wilma Valentine Childcare. We started with a special projects grant, then became a partner agency and are now celebrating 30 years. The SCUW has high expectations for their partner agencies and we are so proud of our affiliation with them and all the partner agencies.
