Jan Keough receives Blandin Foundation Courageous Broadband Leader 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 Pine Journal

Jan Keough of Cloquet was presented with a Courageous Leadership Award at the 15th annual Blandin Foundation broadband conference, Innovation: Putting Broadband to Work, Oct. 8-9 at Grand View Lodge in Nisswa, Minn. Keough was honored for her leadership and commitment to bring broadband connectivity to the eight townships of the Cloquet Valley Internet Initiative (CVII).

“Jan is emblematic of the citizen leaders in the Cloquet Valley and across the State of Minnesota who invest hundreds of hours on this community vitality issue on behalf of their neighbors,” Bernadine Joselyn, director of public policy and engagement at Blandin Foundation said in a news release. “Jane is truly an inspiration to our Blandin Foundation team.”
