Donna Kinnick named Everyday Hero
Donna Kinnick was recently named an Everyday Hero by Carroll County State Bank for her many hours of service to her community and school.
Kinnick, who works at Community Insurance in Glidden, was nominated by Angela Lensch, an instructor in the Glidden-Ralston school district.
CCSB honored Kinnick for her efforts and thanked her by adding, “It is through people like her that our communities thrive and become the places we are proud to call home!”
Following is the nomination letter written on Kinnick’s behalf by Lensch:
I am delighted to write a nomination for Donna Kinnick for being such a valuable asset to the Glidden Community. Donna has worked in Glidden for multiple years but the hours of service and volunteer time she has put in have been endless. I have known Mrs. Kinnick for almost my whole life and have hound her to be a huge part of planning, organizing, and working at every event that involves our community for as long as I can remember.
There are endless amounts of people who have definitely benefited from her presence. She always shows great leadership qualities and always makes sure to get any job done even though it's a fully volunteer activity. She has also made a concerted effort to synthesize planned activities to benefit the town of Glidden.
Here are just a few of the things that come to mind when thinking about the activities she has been involved in lately: organizing the Glidden Fun Days events, she works weekly helping out with the G-R After School Program with the students in attendance, she has organized the Box Tops program for the school for multiple years, and these are just a few of the things I witnessed her do this year. The last two summers she volunteered time doing concessions for the Glidden Swim Team, a job no one cared to do, even though her own kids have grown and graduated. It was clearly done out of the kindness of her heart.
Even when I was much younger it was Donna making signs to cheer on the local teams to place along route to their destination. There are dozens of other activities I know she has helped with also, more than I can even start think of. You know you can always plan on seeing her at any event to benefit the town or to be there helping out someone in need. It is clearly evident that Mrs. Kinnink is well deserving of this outstanding person of our community distinction. Finally though, the best thing about Donna is that she is always a smile, kind- word, and one of the most warm-hearted person that you will find anywhere. Glidden is lucky to have a person such as this to support the people in this town!
Let me know if you have any questions.
Congratulations Donna for all you do!
