Board of Governors’ Award presented to John Stealey

CLEVELAND – The NATAS Central Great Lakes chapter’s board of governors is proud to present its prestigious Board of Governor’s Award to former chapter president and veteran gala producer John Stealey for his tireless work on behalf of the chapter.

The board’s unanimous decision was based on John’s many contributions to the chapter through the years, particularly these last few years when he found so many new ways for our chapter to connect and celebrate our galas virtually during the pandemic.  

“John has contributed a great deal of his time and resources to our chapter through the years and has been the creative force behind so many of our projects,” said chapter president Dan Spehler. “He’s been the heartbeat of our chapter, and is incredibly deserving of this most prestigious honor.” 

Here are some more of the comments from board members about this award: 

One board member said: “A great choice. He has been dedicated to the Chapter, a strong advocate for us in National matters and a tireless worker on all things Gala-related.” 

Other board members said: “YES 10,000 percent YES! … He’s very deserving and has great ideas.” 

Congratulations, John!
