Emergency Management Director Mistie Gardner was recently named Who's Who in America's Neighborhoods in the Governmental Category for her efforts and involvement during the COVID-19 crisis as well as during Winter Storm Uri.
The Who’s Who in America’s Neighborhoods Award was created to recognize those individuals who go the extra mile in serving their communities. Each nominee is evaluated based on their neighborhood involvement and how the nominee has proven to be a leader in the community. There are two categories for this particular award: Governmental Nominee and Grassroots/Neighbor Nominee.

NUSA is a national nonprofit organization committed to building and strengthening neighborhood organizations.

Award winners and finalists were announced at the NUSA annual conference in Little Rock, Arkansas, earlier this month.
