On Saturday, November 11, 2017, Child’s Voice celebrated at the annual Autumn Gala, held at the Morton Arboretum.  At the Gala, Michael Walters (Glenview) was recognized with the Voice from the Heart Award.

“Mike was an instrumental part of the success of Child’s Voice,” stated Dr. Michele Wilkins, Executive Director at Child’s Voice. “He joined our Board of Directors, hit the ground running, and helped us to continue on a path to excellence.”

Walters joined the Board in 2001 and served as the President until 2005. In that time, he and Dr. Wilkins assembled a Board of business leaders and professionals who had experience in management and speech language pathology.

Introduced in 2016, the Voice from the Heart Award recognizes an individual that has given exemplary and dedicated service to Child’s Voice. One who has impacted the organization, but more importantly, the children and families of Child’s Voice.
