Every year, CIS of Atlanta holds an awards dinner in order to 1) celebrate student groups for making a difference in their communities through their service projects; and 2) recognize individual students who have made significant improvements in school. The program is called "Choose Success", and the 2017 edition of the awards dinner took place at the beautiful Georgia Aquarium on Tuesday, April 18, 2017.

In addition to honoring students, CIS will continue its tradition of presenting the Anne Cox Chambers Champion for Kids Award to a philanthropist who has gone above and beyond to support students and the entire community. This year's very special recipient will be Mike Donnelly, President of Wells Fargo Georgia and a long-time champion of kids in our community.
