Schwerin Honored with 2021 J Associates Emerging Leader Award

Capes Sokol is pleased to announce that Michelle F. Schwerin is the 2021 J Associates Emerging Leader Award recipient. The award is presented annually to a member of the service community who shows outstanding leadership, dedication and commitment to the St. Louis community, and the St. Louis Jewish Community Center (the “J”) and its mission.

“During the pandemic, Michelle helped the J’s Executive Team address the organization’s financial needs in order to address budgeting concerns and secure funding to sustain the J’s operations and maintain vital programing to support the St. Louis community. When the J was [shutdown] during the first few months of the pandemic, Michelle did not slowdown in her commitment to helping the J survive the impact of the pandemic. Prior to the pandemic, Michelle provided invaluable support to the Camp Sabra community, helping college-age staff members better understand their path to meaningful employment. She is Camp Sabra alum and supports the Sabra community as a way of giving back.”
