In its 20th year of celebrating the valuable work of community leaders and advocates for youths and families, Nabhi Christian Ministries of Lincoln/Larimer will honor four distinguished people at its annual NCM Awards dinner on Oct. 6, including Neighborhood Allies’ own, Shad Henderson!

The 2017 NCM Community “HERO” Leadership Award recipient is Mr. Shad Henderson, the director of Community Partnerships and Investments at Neighborhood Allies and a coordinator for Neighborhood Allies CDC and CBO partnerships.

“We are so proud of Mr. Henderson’s work as a former educator of 4-H Youth Development for the Penn State Center in Pittsburgh, where he piloted a leadership initiative for young African-American males of the East End so they could become actively engaged in the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of local neighborhood improvement projects,” Ms. Fielder said. “He also deserves recognition for his passionate outreach work as a former senior executive assistant to state Senator Jim Ferlo.”

Join us in congratulating Shad on this well deserved recognition!
