Recognizing local businesses for their impact in Lansing



LANSING, Mich. (WILX) – Some businesses were honored for impacting Lansing’s south side community.

On Wednesday, the South Lansing Business Association held an award ceremony at the Celebration Cinema theatre. Three awards were presented, including Business of the Year and the Alfreda Schmidt Lifetime Achievement Award.

The president of the association emphasizes the importance of recognizing those who have made an impact in the South Lansing community.

“The main goal of today is a celebration and really a calling to action for others to do what they can when they can to improve the community and those around them,” said South Lansing Business Association President Kevin Tenney.

The LaFontaine car dealership in South Lansing won the Business of the Year award, and Lupe Izzo, the wife of Spartan coach Tom Izzo, received the Alfreda Schmidt Lifetime Achievement Award.
