Transform and Inspire

At the McElroy Trust we invest in opportunities that
inspire and transform young people in northeast Iowa.

Upper Midwest Board of Governors Emmy® Award

September 30, 2016:  At the McElroy Trust, we love honoring teachers!  We are humbled to announce that we’ll be honored for honoring teachers! (Maybe we’ll inspire a few other communities to do the same.)  In late October, the R.J. McElroy Trust and KWWL-TV will receive a Regional Emmy Award for the Gold Star Award for Outstanding Teaching.

“The National Academy of Television Arts & Science (NATAS) – Upper Midwest Chapter Board of Governors Award is the most prestigious Regional Emmy® Award in our chapter.  It is voted on by solely by the board.  The Governor’s Emmy® Award honors visionary, long-standing relationships that creatively and effectively use corporate, non-profit and broadcast resources to showcase the power of broadcasting to advance a mission or message. The award is presented to a broadcaster, advertiser or company, as well as a non-profit organization, each of whom has contributed to forward a cause.”
