“Every day, volunteers across Nebraska step forward, going the extra mile by providing essential services or meeting critical needs in their communities,” said Cathleen Plager, executive director of ServeNebraska. “The Step Forward Awards provide an opportunity to recognize these individuals or groups for their time, dedication and work in service to others.”
