Inspire Awards

The 2018 Inspire Awards, a signature event of College Mentors for Kids were held in Indianapolis, Indiana at the J.W. Marriott on Thursday, February 22nd. Each year the awards celebrate mentors: people who have sat down with you over coffee and given advice, challenged you to grow, listened to new ideas, and encouraged you.  The awards are a great way to honor the person who gave you the courage to take a new leap in your career or inspired you to pursue your passions.

The awards luncheon attracted more than 500 community leaders and recognized seven outstanding mentors as Mentors of the Year.  Each year a Lifetime Achievement Award winner is also honored; this year’s honoree was Jim McClelland, Executive Director of Drug Prevention, Treatment and Enforcement for the State of Indiana.

The Inspire Awards are graciously sponsored by the following Fellowship Level Sponsors:
