      CEO of Teaching Family Homes receives community award

      The 2012 Evergreen Award was handed out on Monday afternoon in Marquette.

      Chris Myers, the CEO of Teaching Family Homes, was recognized for being a visionary for women and children to reach their potential. It's her determination that's given futures to hundreds of forgotten and abused children.

      Teaching Family Homes sits on a 40-acre campus in Chocolay Township. Myers said she usually helps behind the scenes on the Evergreen Award steering committee.

      "It never crossed my mind that I would be selected, and I know that there are so many deserving women in the community," said Myers. "It's a great community to grow and develop in and I'm just honored that I was selected for this."

      The Evergreen Award is organized by the Zonta Club of Marquette and is open to men and women of Marquette County.
