AARP Taking Nominees for Stephen J. Gools Award

AARP Michigan is accepting applications for the first annual Stephen J. Gools Award, to be given each year to those who have helped to bring about positive social change in the state.

The award honors the life of Steve Gools, former state director of AARP Michigan, who passed away this year. Gools was a man who cared deeply and had a strong passion for improving the lives of others – especially those who were unable to do so alone.

“Steve was a role model and a shining example of leadership, intellectual curiosity, courage and determination,” said Jacqueline Morrison, state director of AARP Michigan. “He was dedicated to helping those who could not help themselves.”

Gools was director of AARP Michigan for12 years. He leaves a legacy of passion and commitment for the rights of those over age 50 across the state.

His innovative volunteer training and development conferences served as a model at AARP.

Prior to joining AARP, Gools served as communications director for the Michigan Democratic Party and held senior management positions with Michigan candidates and elected officials, including U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow. He also worked for the bipartisan Northeast-Midwest Congressional Coalition and the U.S. House Budget Committee Task Force on Community and Natural Resources.
