What’s Right with the Region 2012

Focus St. LouisFOCUS St. Louis® invites you to be part of a unique regional celebration once again! The 15th annual What’s Right with the Region! (WRWR) awards celebration will recognize success stories from throughout the greater St. Louis region.  We delight in this opportunity to applaud the outstanding accomplishments achieved by those working so hard for the greater good of this region.

On Thursday, May 3, 2012, we expect that over 500 citizens will join us to applaud the outstanding efforts of 20 individuals and organizations. The prestigious Leadership Award will be presented to Rev. Jerry Paul, former Executive Director of the Deaconess Foundation.

We are proud to say that “What’s Right with the Region!” is a true and uplifting, regional celebration. With the help of media sponsors St. Louis Public Radio 90.7 | KWMU, KMOV-TV, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, we will issue a call for nominations throughout the community and then spread the news about the “winners” who are having a positive and significant impact on the St. Louis region.
