Johnson receives Outstanding Commissioner Award

Dave Johnson has been a familiar face to Gibbon community members for many years at the Gibbon Community Center, as chairperson of the Gibbon Housing Agency (Colony Acres Apartments), AWANA at the Gibbon Baptist Church, at the community Halloween party every year and around town at various functions. He recently received the Outstanding Commissioner Award presented by the Nebraska Chapter of National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NE NAHRO) for “his Committment to the Affordable Housing Needs of the Community of Gibbon.”

The nomination form for the award stated, “Dave is relentless when it comes to keeping the Gibbon Housing Agency (Colony Acres Apartments) in the forefront of the community’s sights. Through his involvement with numerous community groups, including VIPS (Visually Impaired Peer Support), the local senior group, TOPS (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly), Awana Clubs, Food 4 Kidz, the Colony Acres Tenant’s Association, the local food pantry, and the former Gibbon/Shelton Community Center, the importance of public housing in this rural area is shared with many of the people he comes in contact with.”
