The Eagle Impact Award is presented annually to recognize individuals and organizations who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and service in advancing the mission of Grand Rapids Christian Schools.
Eagle Impact Award recipients have used their gifts and resources to enrich our programs, strengthen our faculty, and make a Grand Rapids Christian education accessible to more students and families. In doing so, they have made lasting contributions to the Grand Rapids Christian Schools community and impacted students for generations to come.
We are honored to present the inaugural Eagle Impact Award to Tom Welch, president of Fifth Third Bank and Grand Rapids Christian Schools parent.
Tom and his wife, Laurie, arrived in Grand Rapids in 2014 with their family to continue his career with Fifth Third Bank. Grand Rapids Christian stood out to them as the best choice for their children’s education.
As president of Fifth Third Bank, Tom is passionate about strengthening families and building a stronger community. He believes strongly that the Bank is an instrument for good work in the community to ensure that all kids and families, regardless of financial background, have access to all that Grand Rapids has to offer.
