Susan G. Komen Michigan’s Jennifer Jurgens Recieves Excellence in Staff Leadership AwardSusan G. Komen Michigan Executive Director, Jennifer Jurgens, was honored for her leadership on June 27 by the global breast cancer organization during its Komen Leadership Conference held in Fort Worth, Texas. Jurgens received the “Excellence in Staff Leadership Award,” which recognizes a staff member of a local Komen Affiliate for accomplishments that exceed normal job responsibilities and expectations. Jurgens was instrumental in the merger of three Michigan Affiliates earlier this year: Mid-Michigan, Southwest Michigan and West Michigan. Jurgens’ leadership was crucial to the consolidation of systems, communications with Komen headquarters in Dallas, TX and ensuring all voices were being heard in the process. In January, Komen Michigan became a legally merged entity with a stronger, broader, more financially stable and dedicated Affiliate known as Komen Michigan.
