Congratulations to ACT's own Jim Walker and Courtney Rott for receiving awards at the Aberdeen Area Chamber of Commerce's annual Community Champions luncheon!
ACT's Artistic/Managing Director James L. Walker was honored with the ViTality Award, which is given to an individual who is a ‘keeper’ of the regional vision, and who lives in the regional growth and ‘ViTality’ spirit every day. The award is named in memory of Aberdonian, Vi Stoia. Jim was recognized for his decades of work supporting theatre and the arts in Aberdeen and around the region and state.
Longtime ACT actor, volunteer, and supporter Courtney Rott, Jr. received the George Award, which is presented to a person who has worked tirelessly on behalf of the community in trying to make Aberdeen a better place to live and work.
