The Green Bay Packers & Humana award Wisconsin Wing a $4,000 grant for Community Quarterback Award
Green Bay, Wisconsin – Over his past 30 years as a member, Civil Air Patrol has given Major Todd Mandel some great experiences, but none may top the experience he’ll have on January 3 when he, and the other recipients of the Green Bay Packers Community Quarterback award, receive recognition at Lambeau Field during a Packers home game. Last Friday, the Packers recognized Mandel, and nine other award winners, as Community Quarterbacks. The award recognizes volunteers who make a significant impact on local organizations through their efforts.
Colonel Rose Hunt, the Wisconsin Wing commander, nominated Mandel for his work in directing Civil Air Patrol’s youth training efforts statewide as well as its marketing and public relations.
Mandel also volunteers with his local CAP squadron handling public affairs and youth leadership development. “As a young man CAP helped teach me so much about leadership and character; now as an adult I just try and give back so other cadets get the same great experience I had,” said Mandel when asked about why he volunteers and focuses heavily on youth training.
The award, sponsored by the Green Bay Packers, the National Football League, and Humana, comes with a $4,000 cash donation to the volunteer’s organization. Recipients received the award at a special luncheon held by Mark Murphy, the Packers President and CEO, which occured at Lambeau Field. Mandel also received two tickets to the Festival Food MVP Deck for the Packers game on January 3 against the Minnesota Vikings. Award recipients will be recognized on the field during a pre-game ceremony.
