Michelson has served as a behind-the-scenes volunteer for all of the local habitat organization's 25 years, helping screen and select the families who will live in the homes built or rehabilitated by Habitat for Humanity. The award was presented during the organization's 25th anniversary celebration at the LaFontaine Golf Club.
