Society for Excellence

S4E.gifThe Society for Excellence was established to recognize individuals who have contributed $1,000 or more annually to support programming on WTVS Detroit Public Television.

The Society's mission is to bring members together for unique experiences that celebrate public television's commitment to educate, entertain and inspire.

Through their leadership, Society for Excellence members also serve as ambassadors for Detroit Public TV, encouraging others to join this effort to use the power of media to provide knowledge and understanding.
