Well-Deserved Honor

I

Steve Stein
Contributing Writer

S to Alderman's resume is filled
with accomplishments.
Now he has another one,
the highest honor bestowed by
the Michigan Recreation and Park
Association.
Alderman received the Fellowship
Award at the association's annual con-
vention. The award, first presented in
1958, honors an association member
who supports and guides fellow rec-
reation professionals and exemplifies
professionalism.
An association member for 34 years,
Alderman has served as its president,
and on the board and several commit-
tees.
"I enjoy what I'm doing. It's fun. I
don't think about awards:' he said.
"But I'm extremely honored because
this award came from my peers:"
The award also has a personal
meaning for Alderman, 56, who lives
in Sterling Heights and is married to
Karen.
He dedicated the award to his
mother, Dorothy, who died in 2007.
His children Derek, 26, Brett, 25, and
Andrea, 18, joined him for the dedica-
tion at the end of his award acceptance
speech.
Alderman won the association's
Program Leadership Award in 1990,
one year after his father Howard
Alderman passed away. At the time, he
dedicated the award to his father.
Stu Alderman was employed for
16 years by the Oak Park Recreation
Department, where he coordinated
athletic programs and special events
among his duties, and for 25 years
by the Troy Parks and Recreation
Department, where he served as direc-
tor.
He's now the executive director of
the Neighborhood Club, a nonprofit
recreation provider in Grosse Pointe
that opened its new Recreation and
Wellness Center in January.
The Neighborhood Club conducted
a nationwide search in 2011 to fill the
position and Alderman was chosen
from among 195 candidates. He said
his interview stretched over two days
and 13 hours.
While in Troy, Alderman played
major roles in the construction of the
city's Community Center and Nature
Center. When he worked in Oak Park,
he started the city's 10-day Fun Fest
that wrapped around the July 4 holi-
day.
His energy and talents haven't been
confined to his jobs.

Stu Alderman and his brother
Mickey

He coordinated the volunteer effort
for the NFL Experience and Hoop
City fan fests when Detroit hosted the
Super Bowl in 2006 and NCAA Final
Four in 2009.
After Ford Motor Co. dropped the
nationwide Punt, Pass & Kick competi-
tion in the late 1970s, he re-launched it
locally, got the Detroit Lions on board,
and now the NFL runs PP&K nation-
ally with millions of youths participat-
ing each year. The revived PP&K cel-
ebrated its 25th anniversary in 2011.
Alderman is the PP&K state chairman
and a consultant to the NFL on the
competition.
Active in the Metro Detroit Amateur
Softball Association since 1979,
Alderman has served as its commis-
sioner since 2009. He directed men's
35-and-over and women's national
tournaments for the Metro Detroit
ASA.
He has served on the Detroit
Metro Sports Commission Advisory
Board since 2010, and he was on the
Michigan Senior Olympics board from
2008-2011.
Mickey Alderman, 66, Stu
Alderman's brother, who retired last
year after 27 years as director of
the Clawson Parks and Recreation
Department, received the Fellowship
Award in 2008.
They're the only siblings who have
won the award.
"Mickey started working in Clawson
and I started working in Troy in the
same week:' Stu Alderman said.
The Michigan Recreation and
Park Association provides advocacy,
resources and professional develop-
ment for parks and recreation agen-
cies, professionals, vendors and advo-
cates.
