Among the honorees were Rob Davidson, a longtime teacher and counselor at Warren’s Paul K. Cousino High School. The Michigan Sports Hall of Fame was also recognized as our Partner of the Year for their work to encourage volunteerism and mentorship with Winning Futures amongst the southeastern Michigan community.
