Western University’s recently retired Janet Smith has been awarded the ChangeMaker Lifetime Achievement Award by United Way Elgin Middlesex for her lifetime dedication to the community. The award is presented annually to an extraordinary community member who has shown a passion for improving lives locally.
Smith’s contributions to the community through United Way started early in her career. She was a key contributor, alongside the Hospitality Team, to the creation of the Beach Volleyball FUNdraiser and Coffee Day for United Way, an event still taking place annually to raise dollars for programs and services supporting our community’s most vulnerable people.
The ChangeMakers Awards are annually presented to exemplary local individuals with a passion for volunteerism and activism. For the first time ever and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, United Way will host ChangeMaker week, a week-long celebration of the winners, beginning May 25.
