The Matusak Courageous Leadership Award was started by Larraine Matusak, a former Leadership scholar at the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and former director of the Kellogg National Fellowship Program. The Matusak Courageous Leadership Award was created to recognize individuals who have shown courage to act authentically and speak up when silence means colluding with the problem. Along with other traits, the Award recognizes those who are creative risk takers, driven by sound judgment, common sense, and profound sense of responsibility, honesty and trust.
