Don Weeks—Founder of Michigan Week
“Don Weeks, a former State of Michigan Economic Development Director, launched the tradition of “Michigan Week” on May 2, 1954. Mr. Weeks’ vision was to bring the business, labor, government and education communities under one banner to promote Michigan. The idea: an annual “Michigan Week” to allow residents to beat their drums for their state.”
Dr. Seymour Gretchko—Former Superintendent of West Bloomfield School District
Dr. Seymour Gretchko was the beloved Superintendent of West Bloomfield School District from 1983-2002 and sadly passed away on March 19, 2002 at age 71. To honor him, one of our communities’ great heroes, the Michigan Week Committee instituted the Dr. Seymour Gretchko Youth Advocate Award.
The focus: A prestigious award that would honor and model the principles and values embraced by Dr. Seymour Gretchko (popularly known as Sy).
