Representative Steve Andersson recently nominated two organizations in his district to receive a special award from AT&T. The Geneva History Museum and the Huntley Historical Society won AT&T “Investing in Illinois Awards” for their non-profit work to help people in Illinois. Each organization received $1,000 from AT&T to help continue preservation efforts in these two communities. The AT&T “Investing in Illinois Awards” provide resources and recognition to organizations and programs that improve lives in their communities and the state. They’re advancing education, economic growth, new technologies and other essential community services. AT&T Inc. has worked to advance education, strengthen communities and improve lives. Through its community initiatives, AT&T has a long history of investing in projects that create learning opportunities; promote academic and economic achievement; or address community needs.
Yesterday, both the Huntley Historical Society and the Geneva History Museum received their awards, and celebrated their achievement with members of their staff, Representative Andersson, and John Quinn from AT&T. Representative Andersson nominated the Geneva History Museum and the Huntley Historical Society for the recognition from AT&T Illinois. “Both the Geneva History Museum and the Huntley Historical Society are important assets in our community. They serve to protect historical landmarks and preserve our community’s rich history while also working to engage our residents. This generous award from AT&T will help them in their efforts, and I congratulate them on this great achievement.”
