Awards presented at the 2017 Show Me Partnerships Conference

Hello, everyone!

KEØLMY here!

I will be skipping around in the conference postings a bit. I wanted to go ahead and put up all of the pictures from the awards presentation.

Some of these, I was able to write down the names of the individual or group for, but others I missed. I am hoping to be able to find out the information from people seeing their own pictures or friends of the subjects. Some of these volunteers’ stories brought me to tears. Their selflessness in real emergency situations was awe-inspiring. Our state had more than it’s fair share of tornadoes and floods in 2017 and these are just some examples of the heroes who jumped in to help those in need. Thank you all!
