Southwest Minnesota Broadband Services (SMBS) receives Courageous Leadership Award

I shared the live unveiling of the award last month during the broadband conference but each of the winners has worked hard and I didn’t do individual posts about each one so I’ll post these local announcements as I see them. This one comes from the Jackson Pilot reports

A Jackson County-based multiple-municipality owned communications utility was recently presented with a prestigious leadership award  by the Blandin Foundation.

Southwest Minnesota Broadband Services received the Courageous Leadership Award at the 15th annual Blandin Foundation broadband conference last week in Nisswa. The SMBS Governing board was honored for its vision and multi-community collaboration in creating a public regional fiber network that serves residential and business customers in eight rural communities.
