2016 Community Service Award Recipient - Paula Cunningham

Paula Cunningham is one of Greater Lansing’s most recognized and successful business minds, leader and community servant. Paula serves as State Director for AARP in Michigan. Prior to her appointment, Cunningham courageously and successfully guided Capital National Bank through a stubborn economy as CEO beginning in 2006. In addition to these distinguished positions, Paula guided Lansing Community College as their President for six years where she successfully led a community millage campaign to generate an additional $9 million annually for the institution into perpetuity. The new Administration Building was named in her honor after she implemented an aggressive facilities master plan, which resulted in five new buildings in five years and increased faculty salaries. She is the only female in downtown Lansing with a building named after her. Paula has served with distinction on numerous community boards and currently serves on the boards of McLaren Health Systems, Davenport University, Children’s Leadership Council of Michigan, Greater Lansing Food Bank Empty Plate Board and the City of Lansing’s Financial Health Team. She was honored with the ATHENA Leadership award in 2005 and is a member of the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame.
