Donna Kinnick recognized for Volunteerism

Donna Kinnick recognized for Volunteerism

It is always a pleasure to share information about Volunteers - and this time it is a KINNICK:


Donna Kinnick, a Bayard native who lives in Glidden and works at Community Insurance in Glidden, was named an Everyday Hero by Carroll County State Bank for her many hours of service to her community and school. Kinnick was nominated for the award by Angela Lensch, an instructor in the Glidden-Ralston school district.

“I have known Mrs. Kinnick for almost my whole life and have found 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,” wrote Lensch in her nomination letter. “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.”

Lensch noted that Kinnick has organized the Glidden Fun Days events, helps out weekly at the GR After School Program, organized the Box Tops program for the school, and volunteered time to help with concessions for the Glidden swim team. The latter, Lensch said, was a job no one else cared to do and Kinnick stepped forward, “... even though her own kids have grown and graduated. It was clearly done out of the kindness of her heart.”

“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!”

Donna is married to high school sweetheart, Lon Kinnick, and they live north of Glidden. They have two grown daughters, Keely and Kami.
