Dave Reed Receives For the Love of Children Award

On May 7, Boys Town Director of Central ​Nebraska Operations, Dave Reed, was one of three recipients of the For the Love of Children award for his accomplishments in successfully expanding Boys Town Services in Central Nebraska.

The inaugural For the Love of Children Award Ceremony was held at the Riverside Golf Club in Grand Island, Nebraska. A committee of non-profit organizations, board members and volunteers in Grand Island held this event to recognize those in the community who have affected children in a positive way through their efforts.

During the ceremony an excerpt from the nomination letter was read, “Dave is a quiet servant for children.  He does not focus on what he has accomplished, but what he needs to accomplish and for whom he is accomplishing it. In short, he gets the job done.”

Former State Senator and current Executive Director of the Nebraska Association of Behavioral Health Organizations, Annette Dubas, was the keynote speaker.  She spoke of Nebraska children in poverty, uninsured, mental health needs and the hope that child welfare is turning the corner to address those needs.
