Joliet Community Television volunteers, Dick and Millie Schuster,have been selected recipients of an Award of Excellence in the team category as part of the 2020 Distinguished Service Awards Program.
This program is sponsored by the Illinois Chapter of the National School Public Relations Association (INSPRA).
The Schusters were nominated for this prestigious award by Kristine Schlismann, JTHS director of community and alumni relations.
The statewide Distinguished Service Awards program honors those whose efforts have enhanced education and conveyed its importance to the community on behalf of their schools and districts.
Because of Dick and Millie Schuster, thousands of Joliet Township High School (JTHS) stakeholders view school events and performances from the comfort of their homes.
Dick has volunteered at JCTV Channel 6 for over 32 years as president, filming thousands of events with Millie by his side.
As a team, they never refuse to film any event, unless they are already filming another event in the community.
The Schuster’s have expressed that they are especially impressed by the young people in the orchestra and band.
They have filmed both World Premieres of the orchestra’s commissioned pieces in celebration of its 110th anniversary and countless concerts.
In addition, the couple always films and produces the Central campus Veteran’s Day Celebration.
In addition, Dick always takes the time to recruit veterans to be recognized with personal phone calls.
