Grady Appleton, the president and CEO of the East Akron Neighborhood Development Corporation, will receive the 2014 Community Recognition Award today from the Akron Chapter of the Ohio Realtists Association.
The Ohio Reatlists Association is holding its 64th-annual state conference at the Akron West Holiday Inn Thursday through Saturday. The group will pick officers and give awards at 7 p.m. today.
"I am particularly honored to receive this award from the Ohio Realtists Association because their goals and purposes align perfectly with EANDC's goals," Appleton said in a press release. "Both organizations strive to develop neighborhoods as we provide greater housing opportunities for families."
