ASO named 2021 Grit Award Recipient

The Akron Symphony Orchestra is honored to be the recipient of a 2021 Grit Award from the Greater Akron Chamber.

Each year, the Greater Akron Chamber grants Grit Awards to celebrate local businesses that are advancing the Greater Akron region by driving innovation in their business and industry, adjusting to significant change and helping others succeed and live better lives.

There may be no better example of “grit” than surviving and thriving during a global pandemic such as COVID-19, and our 2021 award winners have embodied the word “grit” in significant ways.

The ASO is proud to be a part of this year’s group of recipients: Akron Bearing Co., Akron Children’s Hospital, Akron Municipal Court, Akron Zoo, Always Dreaming Enterprise, AxessPointe Community Health Center, Castle Noel, Cilantro Thai & Sushi Restaurant, Clarktel/Tele-Communications, ClearSonic Manufacturing, Downtown Akron Partnership, Eat Speak Love, Girl Scouts of North East Ohio, Hair Geek Studios, Harmony House, IBH Addiction Recovery, Kicks n’ Cuts, NoHi Pop-up, a project by North Akron Community Development Corporation, Psych360, Rubber City Reuse, SACS Consulting/S&U Business Strategies, Signet, Sirna & Sons Produce, The House of the Lord and Yoga Squared.

The Greater Akron Chamber is highlighting each of the award winners, their story and how they embody “grit” via a short video appearing on its social media channels beginning May 3 and continuing for 20 business days thereafter. Tune in to the Greater Akron Chamber’s Facebook page or Instagram page daily to learn more about each business.

The series will conclude on May 28 at 9 a.m. when the Greater Akron Chamber hosts a virtual watch party to honor this year’s recipients. Please follow this link to register for the free event.

We want to thank the Greater Akron Chamber for acknowledging the hard work done by so many area businesses, as well as our corporate partners who helped make our Interlude Season a success.

We encourage everyone to watch the various videos and experience how others  are adjusting, growing, moving forward and helping others and experience a part of what makes the Northeast Ohio so special, its people, businesses and resiliency.
