Two Men and a Truck, Rollin Dart Recognized at Highfields Awards Dinner

Two Men and a Truck will be awarded the Partnership Award and Rollin Dart will receive the Robert Drake Citizenship Award at Highfields’ Annual Awards Meeting on Wednesday, April 29 in East Lansing.

Two Men and a Truck has been a dedicated supporter of Highfields for 16 years. Recently, the company donated furniture to Highfields for its new office in Lansing.

“Highfields is fortunate to have Two Men and A Truck as a community partner that shares our commitment to strengthening families and helping others,” Brian Philson, CEO/President of Highfields, said.

Each year, Highfields gives the Partnership Award to an organization which helps fulfill Highfields mission to strengthen the lives, relationships and communities of children, youth and families. Past recipients include Christman Constructors, Douglas Steel Fabricating Corp., General Motors Corp. and the Granger Foundation.

Rollin Dart has been a part of Highfields since its conception in 1954. A good friend of Highfields’ founder, Judge Robert Drake, Dart has helped Highfields through tough times. Highfields would not be the organization it is today without his support.

“Rollie is an amazing individual that is a longtime friend of Highfields and someone who has invested his life to the care and well-being of others,” Philson said. “We are pleased to honor him this year.”

The Robert Drake Citizenship Award is given annually to a person who demonstrates commitment and leadership in bringing people together, strengthening communities and improving lives. Past recipients include Larry and Candy Parker, Kellie Dean, Duane Vernon, Derwood Boyd and Andy Sheets.

Highfields is a human services nonprofit organization serving 11 Michigan counties through their residential treatment program, community services and educational services. More information about Highfields can be found at www.highfields.org.
