YPN Names Nick Gow 2013 YPN of the Year

Category : News

 

YPN believes it is important that we continue to recognize those individuals who have helped to make this organization work and grow and who remain role models in our community.  We would like to do this

by honoring Nick Gow, who works for the City of Muscatine as the Athletic Facilities Manager and who has been involved with YPN since its inception in 2005, with the YPN of the Year Award.  Nick has been chairperson as well as past chair on the Leadership Council for several years. Nick also served on GMCCI’s board for two years as past president of YPN. YPN flourished under Nick’s leadership and became the organization it is today.  Some of the events that Nick spearheaded were Revelry by the River and our Annual Glow Ball Tournament. Nick has also been involved with YP Iowa and served as president and  past president of the YP Iowa Board.

 

Not only is Nick involved with YPN, but he was involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters for over 8 years.  He was a dedicated big brother and truly exemplified what it meant to be a role model .  He also currently serves on YP Iowa, the Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Chamber Ambassador Network, New Beginnings and participates in the Blue Zones Walking Moai and Wine @ 5.

 

Nick not only continues to support YPN, but actively participates on our committees and recruits new members to our organization regularly. Without his support, YPN would not be what it is today.

 

Please help us in thanking Nick Gow for his extraordinary efforts with YPN and to present to him the YPN of the Year Award for 2013!
