Introducing the Storyteller of the Year Award and its First Recipient, Steven Liga

We’re lucky to work with a dynamic group of individuals who are passionate about creating a positive impact in our community and our world. When you hear them speak, you can’t help but engage in what they have to say and care about what matters to them. 

That’s why telling their stories is simple and effortless.

Introducing the Soty Award

There are some people, who go above and beyond. They take their passion to the next level and we don’t want their work to go unnoticed. That’s why we created the Storyteller of the Year Award, also known as the Soty Award. These individuals are constantly working to make the world a better place. We wanted to take a minute to show our appreciation and acknowledge that their work is making a difference. 

The Soty is Lens End Media’s premier award that is awarded to one individual every year.

For our first Soty Award, we chose an individual who is the definition of service. When you sit down with him, you can hear in his voice how much he cares about his community. 

This 2022 Soty Award is presented to Steven Liga for his outstanding work within Prince William Area

Steven’s work entails working with individuals in the Prince William County area who are too often overlooked. In his 8 years at ACTS, he was responsible for expanding both the ACTS’ donor base and constant-changing client base. He worked tirelessly to create essential relationships with multiple organizations and groups within the county. He also applied for and received numerous government funding for multiple critical programs at ACTS.

A New Adventure for Steven

Steven will be serving as a the Director of the Potomac Health Foundation, the Potomac Hospital’s dedicated Foundation that focuses on improving the health of the community by increasing access to health care for the medically underserved.

Steven believes that no one should have to go through life’s hardships alone. At the end of the day, we are one community that holds the power to lift each other up, especially in moments of crisis. 

Steven would always inspire us to be a better version of ourselves and to look out for our neighbors. There was no hesitation from our team to name him our 2022 Storyteller of the Year. 

We wish you the best of luck on your new adventure!
