Earlier this week, I mentioned Rep Ecklund’s Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities award, which notes his work in broadband. Now I’m pleased to see community folks are getting recognition too – for their broadband efforts. Congratulations go out to Nicole Griensewic Mickelson on her award and hard work.
St. Peter Herald reports…
Region Nine Development Commission Executive Director Nicole Griensewic Mickelson received the “Friend of the CGMC” Award from the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities (CGMC) July 25 during the Coalition’s three-day summer conference in Bemidji. The Friend of the CGMC Award recognizes individuals and organizations that have helped advance the interests of Greater Minnesota.
In addition to her role in helping to foster business and job growth in southern Minnesota through Region Nine, for the past two years Griensewic Mickelson has served as president of the Greater Minnesota Partnership (GMNP), the CGMC’s economic development-focused sister organization. She has proven to be a strong and effective leader on many issues that impact Greater Minnesota, including broadband expansion, workforce development and seeking out solutions to the child care crisis.
