Pillars of the Community

Past, present, future, we understand the contributions of those who came before, the current achievements of our visionary and dedicated community, and the exciting potential of the energy and enthusiasm with new arrivals and the next generation of dreamers and doers!

The team is working on the “Pillars of the Community” project to highlight the diverse voices of the past, the present, and the ones to watch for the future, who help make Grand Rapids the exceptional place it is to live, work, and play.

Join us! If you would like to be a part of our research team and help ensure a broad and inclusive perspective in the process, please let us know!
