Henderson receives Governor’s Volunteer Award

Linda Henderson of Randall received a Governor’s Volunteer Award from Governor Terry E. Branstad and Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds during a special recognition ceremony held June 21 in Pleasant Hill .

Linda Henderson was honored with a 5 Year Individual Length of Service award by SHIIP (Senior Health Insurance Information Program) for Medicare Counseling.

“I am pleased to honor those who have given the precious gift of their time to meet essential needs across Iowa,” stated Governor Terry E. Branstad. “The commitment of these volunteers—and all volunteers—helps Iowa consistently remain in the top 10 states in the nation for its volunteerism rate.”

“Volunteering not only has a positive impact on the individuals receiving the service, but serving others transforms the volunteer themselves,” said Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds. “The dedication of the people selected for these awards often encourages others to become involved in service, and I am delighted to recognize them for their amazing contributions.”

Coordinated by Volunteer Iowa, the Governor’s Volunteer Award program provides an easy way for Iowa nonprofits, charitable organizations, and government entities to honor their volunteers with a prestigious, state-level award. Hundreds of volunteers are recognized each spring during ceremonies held at several locations around the state. More information is available at volunteeriowa.org.
