March 20, 2020 Iowan of the Week
Each week, I honor an Iowan who has done something outstanding that deserves to be recognized. I started my ‘Iowan of the Week’ because I want to honor our unsung heroes, our everyday Iowans who leave a positive impact on their community not for renown or reward, but because that is who they are. I’ve found parents, teachers, and farmers to celebrate each week. This week, I ask the House of Representatives to join me in honoring Iowans a little differently. I ask you to join me in honoring all our health care workers.
