2013 Heart of a Champion – Edward Albertson

Strong. Enthusiastic. Involved. These are the words used to describe Edward Albertson and his tireless work as Vice President of the Friends of Brandon Township Public Library. As chairman of the Support Our Library Committee, Ed led the group to an ultimately successful passage of the library’s millage increase proposal in August 2012 despite a difficult political climate. His extraordinary ability to communicate the needs of the library combined with his leadership skills laid the foundation for other Support Our Library volunteers to not only stay involved in the campaign, but to also look for new opportunities to advocate for the library.

Through his long time work with the Lion’s Club and involvement with organizations that include the American Cancer Society, Alzheimer’s Association and Sparky Anderson’s Catch, Ed had already established his record for integrity and community dedication. Those traits have been showcased in his efforts on behalf of the library and are the reason he is being honored with the 2013 Heart of a Champion Award.
