On June 19th, Governor Kim Reynolds and Acting Lt Governor Adam Gregg presented the Story County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) with the Governor’s Volunteer Service Award. Keith Morgan, the Story County Emergency Management Coordinator who nominated the group for the award said, “Communications is the linchpin of disaster response and the Story County Amateur Radio Emergency Service has selflessly and quietly worked to ensure our first responders stay connected no matter what happens. Nominating them for this award was the least I could do for them.”
Coordinated by Volunteer Iowa, the Governor's Volunteer Award program—now in its 35th year— recognizes the dedicated people who volunteer their time and talent to help fulfill the missions of Iowa nonprofits, charitable organizations, and government entities.
