MDHHS executive director wins lifetime achievement award

The executive director of the state agency that protects children from abuse and neglect and oversees Michigan’s foster care system and adoption efforts was honored Tuesday with a lifetime achievement award.

Steve Yager, executive director of the Children’s Services Agency within the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, received the Daniel J. Wright Lifetime Achievement Award during Adoption Day ceremonies at the Michigan Supreme Court Hall of Justice. The award is to recognize outstanding work for Michigan’s children.

Yager is deserving because of his passion for protecting the safety and well-being of Michigan’s children, said Nick Lyon, director of MDHHS.

The award sponsored by the Michigan Supreme Court and MDHHS is named after Wright, a Grand Ledge attorney who was credited with the “Michigan Miracle” in 2002 when he worked as a special assistant to Maura Corrigan, then chief justice of the Michigan Supreme Court.
