STS Enterprise Honored as Outstanding Local Nonprofit for 2018

On December 10, 2018, STS Enterprise was celebrated by The SPARK Awards. The SPARK Awards are the Mid-South's annual televised award show that honors individuals and organizations making a difference in the community. At the fifth annual show, STS Enterprise was honored with the 2018 SPARK Award for Nonprofit with Budget Under $1 Million.


“We don’t do our work to be praised. We do our work to make an impact on future generations of Memphians. But, I must say cityCURRENT and WKNO-TV have truly shown us generosity with how they have celebrated our programs and showcased our work to their audiences. This award has definitely elevated us to a new platform and we are very grateful for it!” said Alton Cryer, co-founder of STS Enterprise.


The SPARK Awards celebrates and recognizes the efforts of individuals, nonprofits, corporations, and schools, in 13 different categories, who are igniting change and making a positive impact in the Greater Memphis community. 


“This year has really been one of stepping out of the limelight for me and Alton. Honors like the SPARK Awards truly help us to showcase the dedication of our more than 80 volunteers along with the incredible accomplishments of our students. I am so grateful to cityCURRENT and WKNO-TV!” commented Jeremy Calhoun, co-founder of STS Enterprise.


The awards are an extension of the WKNO-TV series, “The SPARK.” The SPARK is a monthly 30-minute show about business and community leaders who are fueling change and giving back to the Mid-South.


Major funding for The SPARK Awards is provided by Lipscomb & Pitts Insurance, Data Facts, and Champion Awards & Apparel. Additional funding is provided by Christian Brothers University, SRVS, My Town Movers/My Town Roofing/My Town Miracles, United Way of the Mid-South and Mueller Industries.
