Transform Rockford

cover story, by Coleen Martin Williams, photographed by Karen A. King

“It is the heavy presence of negatives that prompted Tom Gendron (Chairman/CEO Woodward Governor) to bring business executives together to discuss how about ways the area’s social and economic conditions could undergo a significant improvement.”

“Mayor Larry Morrissey and Reverend Kenneth Board (Pilgrim Baptists Church) were among the community leaders invited to join the discussions. These meetings produced a planned initiative that would use community input as the foundation for a comprehensive plan of action…to improve the city and surrounding area.  The initiative is called Transform Rockford and was launched in November 2013.  Mike Schablaske id the Executive Director.”
