Mayor John Noak accepted the CommunityWINS® top award in the small city category for economic development initiatives from the U.S. Conference of Mayors and Wells Fargo recently. In addition to Mayor Noak’s recognition a $75,000 grant was awarded to Lewis University in support of its Lewis Innovation Hub. An independent panel of judges selected recipients of the Wells Fargo Foundation-funded grants from 136 applicants representing small, medium, large and metropolitan cities. “We appreciate Wells Fargo and the Wells Fargo Foundation for their continued support of the CommunityWINS® Program, which also celebrates the leadership of mayors and city governments,” said Tom Cochran, CEO and executive director of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
