Kalamazoo Area Building Authority named a recipient of a Southwest Michigan First Catalyst Award in the COLLABORATION Category.

Southwest Michigan First recognized the Kalamazoo Area Building Authority (KABA) for contributions that moved our region and people toward greatness. Those who exemplified the ability to inspire others to lead, the desire to collaborate for greater good, and the innate drive to make our communities worthy of generations to come were recipients of the Community Partner of the Year awards. KABA was honored for their dedication to making the local community a better place to live, work, play, and innovate in the category of COLLABORATION. Each award winner was presented with the Catalyst, a beautiful hand blown glass sculpture created for the event by local artist Judith Konesni of Tidal Wave Glass. This award is a symbol of the commitment to excellence demonstrated by each of this year’s winners.
