Congratulations to the 2012 Ak-Sar-Ben's River City Rodeo & Stock Show Volunteers of the Year:
Emily Hilton - General ARCR Volunteer of the Year - During the months leading up to the event this individual would often stop after work or schedule work hours around special project needs in the ARCR office. Providing extra hands, typing skills, cutting and entry assistance as needed. For the week of the event, this individual scheduled a vacation from full-time employment, like many of you do, to work 12 to 16 hour days with the ARCR Staff, This year she did everything from DCF data entry, 4-H Office and ARCR setup to Rodeo Production. This talented young lady has a passion for Stock Shows and Rodeos and as a past exhibitor at the event is by staff considered “one of us” because of all she gives not only in time but what she shares from her heart.
Craig Korkow - ARCR Rodeo Committee Volunteer of the Year - The Rodeo Committee has benefited by this individuals vision for the past ten years through an event that gives the rodeo experience to a segment of the population who may not have dreamed that possible and in 2012 raised the bar again developing a new event benefiting the future rodeo contestants. For all he has done through the Rough N Ready Challenge Rodeo, the development of the High School Rodeo Conference and his Rodeo 101 presentations, we are pleased to present Craig Korkow with the ARCR Rodeo Committee Volunteer of the Year award.
Bruce Treffer - Ak-Sar-Ben 4-H Stock Show Volunteer of the Year - Bruce Treffer began volunteering for the Ak-Sar-Ben Stock Show when he was a college student at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. In his 40 years of committed volunteerism, he has facilitated numerous shows as superintendent. Treffer says he developed many strong friendships while at Ak-Sar-Ben. His most special memory is meeting the woman who he now calls his wife.
